The Trashion Show – 2021 – Tickets on Sale Tomorrow, July 1st!

The Trashion Show is an entertaining fashion show, presented by Bainbridge Island Zero Waste, a program of Sustainable Bainbridge, featuring a variety of outrageously creative garments made from an assortment of recycled materials, such as repurposed clothes, food wrappers, magazines/periodicals, discarded books/manuals, plastic and bubble wrap, plastic utensils and drink containers, obsolete electric/computer cables…honestly, if people throw it out, the Trashion artists are probably creating something unusual with it.

This year’s show has a new venue: Hilltop meadow, between the west and east Grand Forest.

The thirteen designers and their models will each have their own tent, and attendees will walk around the short trail to view the outfits. In addition to juried categories, the audience will have a chance to weigh in and vote on their favorite design.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 6 AM until they are sold out. Go to to order your timed-entry tickets. Tickets for the show are $15 for adults and $5 for children (under 12).

The timed-entry tickets for the day of the show, July 25th, begin at 1 PM and end at 3:30 PM. The Show runs from 1 to 4 PM on July 25th.

A little history: In 2005, a group of islanders got together to discuss the needs of sustainability on Bainbridge Island, and in 2006 Sustainable Bainbridge was formed. Their goals ranged from preserving our delicate environment, waterways and shorelines to engaging the community, businesses and local government in creating economic and social programs that will make Bainbridge Island a healthy and sustainable environment for everyone to enjoy.

Sustainable Bainbridge has since created a variety of programs and initiatives, ranging from exploration and monitoring of our beaches and near-shore areas with trained naturalists, creating a lighter footprint by supporting and sustaining our pedestrian walking paths, trails, sidewalks, and bike paths, eradicating noxious and invasive weeds, such as the Scotch Broom plant, promoting local food use and much, much more (click here for more details on these programs).

One such initiative is Bainbridge Island Zero Waste, a program that encourages the reduction of waste produced by our community through recycling, composting, disposal of special recyclables (Styrofoam, CDs, plastic film, etc.) and the community re-use of items you no longer want or need, but may appeal to others (several businesses around the island will take those items for re-use, click here for a list). In addition to The Bainbridge Island Trashion Show, they sponsor a variety of events throughout the year.
