Ever thought of using recyclables in a unique way by wearing them? Well one MSU organization did, and this is the 5th year it is putting on a show.
Engineers Without Borders will be hosting its 5th annual recycled fashion show this Friday. Today students were out on campus helping spread word about the show, helping promote it. Engineers Without Borders is a student-run organization that works to provide clean water to schools in Kenya.
"We're working in Khwisero Kenya which is western Kenya, we're trying to bring clean water and sanitation to 61 primary schools lots of children, especially females, miss tons of class to get water and even when they get the water after walking many miles it's still not always clean," says MSU engineering student Mike Lerman, a member of Engineers Without Borders.
The event takes place this Friday, at the Best Western Grantree. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets for students are $5 in advance or $7 at the door. Tickets for non-students are $7 in advance or $9 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at the S.U.B. on campus tomorrow and Thursday between 10 am and 2 pm.
Since 2004, MSU's Engineers Without Borders, have successfully set up eight deep-water wells and 11 composting latrines for schools.
