Students Invited to Clinton Global Initiative University

This year, two Textile Development and Marketing students participated in the Clinton Global Initiative University, an organization that brings young people together to take action on some of the world’s most pressing problems. The students, Lydia Baird and Willa Tsokanis, presented an innovative proposal at this year’s conference, March 6 to 8 at the University of Miami, to compost discarded muslin and other natural fabrics as a way to reduce landfill waste and add nutrient-rich soil to our environment. They plan to use the compost on FIT’s natural dye garden, created by the students who participated in CGIU last year.
