A couple of top designers have teamed up to launch Recycle Now Week to promote their passions for fashion and raising environmental awareness. They designed dresses out of trash, recycling old packaging, cans, newspapers and more, proving waste can be made in to striking fashion with the right touch. Even a tiered ball gown of recycled denim looks good.

Implications - The rise of environmentalism has caused professionals in every industry to adopt Earth-friendly practices such as recycling. Fashion designers have responded to this renewed interest in eco-friendliness by creating "green" fashion events in which the only styles shown are those made from recycled or repurposed goods. Companies can take advantage of this opportunity by participating in such events, thus aligning themselves with the green movement -- and its consumers.
