Making a political statement about our throwaway society, the dissolvable dress erodes to nothing once exposed to water. The dress is meant to highlight the fact that plastics can be made friendlier.

Implications - This piece is one of the many creative ways that companies can promote eco ideas. According to Telegraph, the professors feel that the project is a "profound artistic statement" when it comes to promoting environmental awareness. With cars going electric and plastic bags slowly being replaced by bags brought from home, going green is actually a success. While it's impossible to change the entire world at once, society is slowly progressing. Perhaps this dress will change fashion in order to get consumers to think about being kinder to the planet.
