Students update their closets sustainably at EcoReps clothing swap

EcoReps set up shop for their Clothing Swap in Jamrich on Oct. 13. Dresses, tops, and bottoms were laid or hung by size and neatly folded by the organizers.

Participants could find all types of styles and colors to your liking. Students participated in pacing of their classes, whether that be dropping off a few items of clothing or looking for something new for their closet.

Miki Roger, a second year student and the Sustainable Fashion Intern for SHINE, was running the swap.

“This is the first time we’ve started off right away with all the clothes out because we have our clothing donation bins,” Roger said.

The swap goes until 4 p.m. in the Jamrich atrium. You do not need to bring clothes to pick some up.

Abigail Faix, Features Editor
My name is Abby, I am a fourth-year student at Northern. I am studying Multimedia Journalism with a minor in Political Science. I've always been passionate about journalism since I was in high school. I was offered this position as a Journalism Practicum student and am now so thankful to have the opportunity to write for The Northwind as the new Features Editor. I've found that The Northwind has led me to more connections throughout the university and community than I would find on my own. I'm always interested in getting to know new people and what's happening around Marquette.
