Teacher gives lesson on sustainablity by wearing same clothes for 100 days: as seen on Action News at 4 p.m., September 13, 2018

A New Jersey art teacher has pledged to wear the same outfit for 100 days to teach students about sustainability.

William W. Allen Middle School teacher Julia Mooney tells WPVI-TV that wearing a different outfit each day is very wasteful and that the fashion industry is a huge polluter.

The art teacher wears an apron during class time to avoid stains. Mooney says she washes the dress and even has a backup.

Mooney ultimately hopes her sustainability project will serve as an example for students. She plans to continue documenting her progress and sharing lessons about green practices.
