Recycle Runway Mission
Recycle Runway strives to change the way people live
on the earth
through innovative environmental educational
that showcase couture fashions
made from trash.
Environmental educator, artist and recycling consultant, Nancy Judd started
Recycled Runway eleven years ago. While working as the Recycling Coordinator for the
City of Santa Fe and then as the Executive Director of the New Mexico Recycling
Coalition, Ms. Judd recognized that art and fashion could be
used to raise the environmental consciousness of the public in a fun and
positive way. Her project began with the Recycle
Santa Fe Art Market & Fashion Contest. Designing
garments to promote this event led to the creation
of the Recycle Runway Collection which has been featured in press worldwide including the front
page of the Wall Street Journal.

unique recycled designs
takes between 100-400 hours to make.

public's attention and inspire people to consider the environment in
their daily choices at work, home, school and in all their community
