Learn insider tips for thrifting in Ithaca

Weather permitting, participants will walk to local thrift stores to check out the reuse scene in Ithaca. Then participants will return to campus to complete an upcycle project! Choosing between two options, students will repurpose clothing or upcycle furniture from local thrift stores and learn about the amazing opportunities in the city of Ithaca for creating what you want and need sustainably without breaking the bank.
