    About Jennifer Moore:

    Jennifer Moore is the founder and co-creator of Project Upcycle, a sustainable fashion competition for emerging designers from around New England, and PortSwap, the popular clothing swap that is now a City of Portsmouth event with over 750 people attending in 2023. In 2024, Jennifer started a textile makerspace in Kittery, Maine, called The Sewing Room.

    Over the years, Jennifer has been a blogger, editor, and magazine contributor on the issue of sustainable style. In 2023, she took her message to the Portsmouth Music Hall stage with a TEDx Talk promoting the #secondhandfirst movement. Jennifer goes by RECOVERGIRL online, a play on the brand name Covergirl, but with "RE" added at the beginning to bring to mind reduce, reuse, and recycle.
