Creative Reuse + Smart Design = Sexy!

Tonight at The Toby you can interact with two raconteurs who are also experts in zero-waste.  One is Timo Rissanen from Parsons School of Design, a sustainable fashion guru.  The other is innovator Michael Bricker from Indianapolis’ own People for Urban Progress. Timo, originally from Finland, is excited about coming to IMA and offers up his thoughts on zero-waste and plans for tonight’s discussion in a blog post on his website.

Consider this image:

If Americans throw 12 million tons of textiles each year into landfills, isn’t that a lot of free raw material for new design business up-start?  When can “trash” be turned into cash?
