LIM Students celebrate Earth Day at Eileen Fisher

Members of the LIM College community were at the Eileen Fisher store at 521 Madison Avenue on April 25 to help educate customers about Earth Day.

Students Gabrielle Standish, Jennifer Zyto, Kendra Lehner, Lyndsey Pace, Kimmie Rose Levia, and Madison Ross (pictured left to right) were joined by Vice President for Academic Affairs Michael Londrigan and Professor Andrea Kennedy. They were hosted by Assistant Store Manager Katrin Grotepass and Zita Bettig, Sustainability Ambassador for Eileen Fisher.

The students set up a poster presentation showcasing their sustainability research and initiative work from this semester’s Product Development and Merchandising class, while Professor Kennedy displayed several books on the subject.

Dean Londrigan says, “It was a great opportunity. Shoppers in the store were engaged and learned more about fashion and sustainability.”
