Climate change is an intense battle, and humanity needs to do everything possible to survive. Clothing waste is one of the most significant contributors driving the rise of climate change. If clothing waste does not decline, climate change will become irrevocable. This research project will be action based by developing an upcycling program to support environmental conservation. Surveys will be disseminated to 200 Palo Alto residents to measure clothing waste and buying habits in the city. The data collected will reveal the extent of the need for reducing clothing waste in Palo Alto. This study examines the effectiveness and feasibility of upcycling to reduce waste and aid the current climate crisis.
