The 350 Project: Underwear For Awarness
Jules D’Amico, Marieke Perchik, Fiona Hensley, Liz Benvin, and Lauren Quintrell worked together on The Three Hundred and Fifty Project to bring awareness to the campus and surrounding community of carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere. We decided, as a group, to hang three hundred and fifty pairs of socks, underwear, and bras on clotheslines made of trash bags. The significance of this was to highlight one aspect of reducing carbon emissions: that air drying clothing is one way to conserve energy. The trash bags were used to signify the large amount of carbon emissions that were produced during production. We felt that a public display of undergarments would be eye-catching and encourage people to stop and read the facts we posted about carbon emissions on the clothing.
