This semester, Princeton's EcoReps launched “Mend Monday,” a bi-weekly clothing repair initiative in Frist Campus Center. Cecilia Shang '18 and Nico Viglucci '17, the group's organizers, believe that Mend Mondays can bring greater exposure to sustainability while empowering students to take clothing repair matters into their own hands.
Shang said that in preparing for the initiative, a survey was sent out to students in order to gauge interest. The response was overwhelmingly positive.
