Aquarium of the Pacific is calling all eco-friendly designers to participate in their 3rd Annual Trashin Fashion Show. Debuting during the Aquarium’s Urban Ocean Festival on May 5th, participants’ one of a kind designs will work the runway, created out of entirely sustainable materials, with the goal of raising awareness about the dangers of pollution as well as highlighting SoCal’s sustainable resources.

A $500 cash prize will be awarded to the first place winner, with Aquarium-themed prizes being offered to 2nd and 3rd place.
