In prepping for Earth Day, we got to thinking about all the awesome ways you can repurpose materials that would normally be discarded. As we started searching for eco-chic inspiration, we came across a plethora of dresses, frocks, and gowns made from everything from plastic bags to candy wrappers. Here are 15 of our favorite “trashy” fashions.
1. Bread Tag Wedding Dress: Collecting bread tags for 10 years may seem like a hoarder thing to do, but the results are actually quite stunning. We love the dots of color and the fact that each of these tags has a best by date, letting the dress be like a little story of the couples’ time together. (via Ecouterre)
2. Subway Wrappers: A play on Project Runway, Project Subway was part of a recent eco-friendly campaign for this iconic sandwich chain. (via Eco Friend)
