In celebration of America Recycles Day, Los Alamos County Environmental Services sponsored the annual Recycle Fashion Show. Three years ago, Los Alamos Public Schools began collaborating with Los Alamos County when Angelica Gurule, Environmental Services Manager, invited them to bring their student entries to the county’s annual fashion show. Since then, they decided to join forces to encourage more participation from the community.
Many schools from across the district came together to celebrate this event including Aspen, Piñon, Barranca, High School and Chamisa. As well as students from almost every school. “It is our hope to keep growing this event with participation from all schools,” commented Angelica Gurule.
This year there were over 20 participants for the Recycle Fashion Show and over 100 attendees that enjoyed the event. The outfits were wonderfully crafted from recycle materials and extremely creative. The winners for the 2019 Recycle Fashion Show are as follows:
1st – Daisy McCulloch
2nd – Maison Griffin
