Patagonia's Worn Wear College Tour will be traveling to college campuses around the country and tell the story of the Student-Led Zero Waste Movement, highlighting campuses that are leaders in sustainability and zero-waste initiatives. Vendors partnering with Patagonia that will be at this event include: ​Guayaki, iFixIT, Klean Kanteen, and ReFleece, and PLAN: The Post-Landfill Action Network.

10 a.m.-5 p.m.: Worn Wear Repairs-The Patagonia Worn Wear truck tours around the country repairing clothing, so folks can use their stuff longer and replace it less often. Swing by the Worn Wear truck outside the Student Union for free repairs on your rips, tears, busted zippers, missing buttons and more. The Patagonia Worn Wear repair team can fix about 40 garments per day (sorry, no repairs on luggage or shoes). All repairs are made on a first come, first served basis. One repair per guest. They will fix ALL brands! 

​10 a.m.-5 p.m.: Reuse and Repair FairJoin us in the Student Union Ballroom for a day full of reuse and repair with some of our awesome sustainable clubs and organizations. Hang out with some of our student leaders and learn more about sustainability efforts on campus. We will have electronic repairs, tie dye, clothing swaps, an outdoor gear exchange, upcycling and crafting tables, DIY tables, fun games, giveaways, and much, much more.
 
All Day: UMass Outing Club Trips in the Pioneer Valley“We take people into the woods and do things with them” has been the slogan for the UMass Outing Club since it started in 1929.
