Revelstoke sees 4th Annual Trashion Show

Birch and Lace threw the event once again

Birch and Lace hosted the fourth annual Trashion Show on Sunday at the Royal Canadian Legion.

Founded as a solution to the toxic waste that is coming from the beauty industry, Sarah Sansom said she wanted to bridge the volunteer work she was doing with the North Columbia Environmental Society with her career as a hair stylist.

The businesses pillars revolved around community, environment and education.

“This event is perfect because we get to talk a little bit about waste and we get to have the community come out and create a culture about it,” Sansom said.

Cindy and Universal Footwear took second place for their cardboard shoe insert creation.

Abril and Lindy took first place for their colourful cardboard creation.

Tipper, a dog, even got a milk bone for her participation.
