SEEN AND HEARD: APRIL 17TH 2015

There have to be terms other than "family-friendly" that describe things in which both parents and children, alike, are not bored out of their skull at, right? It seems the term is most often used to describe movies that a parent can sit through and maybe chuckle twice. We've done our best below to collect a few "family-friendly" events that go beyond two chuckles in this week's Seen and Heard. Check 'em out below and have a great weekend!

TRASHION FASHION AT REDBUD 2015

TRASHION FASHION AT REDBUD 2015

Instead of throwing that cardboard coffee sleeve into the recycling bin, why not wear it as a cuff or a leg warmer? Sound weird? That's the type of thinking that went into the creation of Denton's Trashion Fashion Program. The award-winning program is now in its fourth year and keeps getting better and better. The City of Denton's Solid Waste and Recycling Department, SCRAP Denton, Keep Denton Beautiful and a few other awesome local organizations use the Trashion Fashion initiative to invite designers of all ages to create clothing (or what they call "wearable art") from materials that would otherwise end up recycled or in a landfill. College fashion design students enter, as well as pubic school students and adults. Every year, they see designs that really earn that "wearable art" title; impressive garbs from all ages made from items as inconspicuous as dryer sheets or newspaper clippings.
