As student clubs at Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep have begun to meet for the new school year, existing clubs such as Refugee Relief and Resettlement, Pi-Rates and UNICEF are joined by some new additions.

One of the new clubs, the thrift club, is launching an effort to educate people on the impacts of fast fashion and to promote the sustainability and recycling of clothing while also having style. Thrift club meets every other Tuesday in F-2 during lunch.

At their most recent meeting on Sept. 27, club members participated in a swap meet in which they exchanged clothing with one another.

The previous meeting consisted of education about the environmental impacts of the fashion industry, combined with the introduction of a clothing drive which the club is hosting.

The club is also looking to have a thrift sale once a semester. The store would include clothing which was donated from the club and would potentially look like the thrift store which was open in the spring as part of a senior project.

Profits from the thrift store and fundraisers the club holds will be donated to a local organization.

The club is also looking to showcase donated clothing on the club’s Instagram page, as well as in a possible fashion show at Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep.

The club leaders Autumn Lor, Bani Singh and Ella Sy agree that the best way for students to be involved with the club is to either donate unwanted clothing or volunteer to sort clothing at a club meeting.
