Happy Earth Day! 🌍 Marc Jacobs proudly supports the Materials for the Arts, an organization dedicated to recycling the fashion industries unused goods for future artwork and education supplies. Last year, in total, the fashion industry diverted 1.5 million pounds of textiles from landfills. That’s equivalent to filling 400 dumpsters every day for a year. 💡 Photo by Mei Tao
