Wearing of the Green

March 17th, 2009

Seeing as it is St. Patrick’s Day, I am sporting a green sweater. Not only is it green in color, but it is made from a sustainable fiber. As we look to outfit ourselves, now and in the future, it will be worth considering not only how our clothing is designed, but also how it is produced. The Steenbock collections offer a variety of titles to explore sustainable fashion and design. Should any of the following titles be circulating to other library users, do speak with your librarians for assistance locating additional copies or related titles.
