Yes, your empty baby wipes packaging can be repurposed!
When asked to become the new Bum Boosa Upcycle Program Coordinator, Fashion Designer and new Mom June Monteiro was more than thrilled to take on such an exciting and challenging role.
Formerly an eighth grade Art teacher, June had experimented with creating wearable art projects with her students. Using found objects, the students created textiles that would then turn into garments.

HER PASSION NOW FUELED
The idea of creating textiles through found objects fueled June’s artistic side, even after she left the teaching profession in 2010 to create her own clothing company, ENAMOUR. June annually creates a wearable art piece to be worn or exhibited.
The Boston Dress (shown above) created with magazine covers of Boston Magazine, worn by former editor Alexandra Hall.
The Mary Jane Dress (shown above) was created with Mary Jane wrappers, exhibited in the “g” Green Design Remade Show.
JUNE JOINS THE BUM BOOSA MOMS!
With her experience and keen eye for repurposing all kinds of materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill, June is looking forward to creating upcycled baby inspired items for Bum Boosa moms. And you never know, perhaps we’ll see an interesting “Bum Boosa” dress in the near future!
Oh and did we mention that June is also a new Mom herself?
