Do & Brew Summer 2017 
esa nyc was in L.A. for one day to bring all your unwanted (doomed for landfill) clothes back to life! 

We learned how to naturally dye, make tassels to embellish with, cut an old t-shirt into a tote bag or tank, and paint the day away on your unwanted clothing. Ryan Sallis headlined with beautiful acoustic tunes.

Thank you L.A. for saving 85 pieces of clothing from hitting a landfill!

Harlem Earth Day After Party
We celebrated Earth Day this year by shopping small and fair trade with NYC Fair Trade Coalition at their Harlem Earth Day Walking Tour and Earth Day After Party hosted by esa. We learned how to weave with fabric scraps that once were doomed for landfill and how to turn an unwanted t-shirt into a tote bag!

 

 

 

Do & Brew @ Not For Them Art Gallery
In partnership with the NYC Fair Trade Coalition & Nineteenth Amendment, esa invited you to come celebrate Fashion Week at its DIY party! You brought all your unwanted (doomed for landfill) clothes back to life and saved 254 garments! 

t-shirts were turned into something new like tanks and tote bags at our t-vamp station, embroidery was taught by New York's first haute couture embroidery school, Ecole Broderies de Luxe. Beads, rhinestones, patches, and painting made the pieces truly unique. Music, drinks, community, and creative energy made it an unforgettable day!

13.1 million tons of textiles are thrown in landfills annually: we minimized that and had fun doing it.
