The Goddard School puts on ‘Recycled Fashion Show’ for Earth Day

Local News

The Goddard School in Knox County decided to celebrate Earth Day in a unique way on Monday. They did so by putting on what they called a “Recycled Fashion Show” for the school’s ninth annual Root for the Earth campaign.

Children and teachers made clothing and accessories out of items they found around the classroom. The kids wore plastic bags, paper bags and toilet paper rolls during the show.

A school spokesperson says it’s important to teach them while they’re young.

“The environment is important because this is where we live, the planet. We’re in charge of taking care of it and it’s important to teach children. The first five years of life is when the most important development occurs,” said Tonya Ray, director of the Goddard School.

Besides creating and starring in their own fashion show, the children also took part in other activities based on STEAM.
