WHAT: This June, ECOUTURE will yet again showcase the chic and sophisticated side of sustainability with a healthy list of local designers who specialize in eco-friendly fashion. The annual event, produced by The Portland State University American Marketing Association (PSU:AMA), educates community members about issues surrounding sustainability, while highlighting "green" choices that can be made in many aspects of daily life including fashion, beauty, food/beverage, supporting community organizations and much more.
Guests will also have the opportunity to shop and mingle with on-site vendors including eco-fabulous accessories, clothing, hair care and sustainable services - as well as win raffle prizes including: one-of-a-kind art pieces, Fibonacci Saponiere beauty baskets, a "bread of the month" gift card by Grand Central Bakery, etc. Proceeds of all raffle ticket sales will benefit Art Not Crime, an organization that promotes social sustainability by providing a safe place for individuals to create urban inspired pieces of art, and display them where their art is appreciated as the language of this new culture, and not classified as crime.
