What is this program? High School Students are the core of this project and empower younger youth and the community to take action towards conservation measures in the areas of energy efficiency, water conservation, composting and recycling, through “Lead it, Live it” Trashion Show Assemblies offered at schools in the region.


How does this program work? A Trashion Show is a fashion show of hand-made, artistic outfits made by students out of unique materials.  Each outfit has accompanying commentary that is educational and lighthearted, sending a message of positive action. Through the years this show has become an iconic production that community and younger students look forward to. The Envirolution club has expanded into leading roles with community efforts in the plastic bag ban, single use plastic ban, restoration projects, cleaning up the lake, protests, and climate justice projects region wide.

Who can participate in this program? 9th - 12th grade students.

Where is this program offered? Envirolution Clubs are offered at Truckee High and North Tahoe High.
