Art teacher wears same dress to pro­mote sus­tain­abil­ity

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - NEWS -

MOORESTOWN » A New Jersey art teacher has pledged to wear the same out­fit for 100 days to teach stu­dents about sus­tain­abil­ity.

Wil­liam W. Allen Mid­dle School teacher Ju­lia Mooney tells WPVI-TV that wear­ing a dif­fer­ent out­fit each day is “very waste­ful” and that the fash­ion in­dus­try is a “huge pol­luter.”

The art teacher wears an apron dur­ing class time to avoid stains. Mooney says she washes the dress and even has a backup.

Mooney ul­ti­mately hopes her sus­tain­abil­ity project will serve as an ex­am­ple for stu­dents. She plans to con­tinue doc­u­ment­ing her progress and shar­ing lessons about green prac­tices through an In­sta­gram page .
