Barbara de Vries uses plastic beach litter to decorate organic cotton T-shirts under the brand, 'Plastic is Forever.'
Environmentally polluting bits of trash are hand-sewn onto the T-shirts which are in turn sold online at loomstate.org and at retailers such as Barney's New York. De Vries uses beach plastic gleaned from Bahamas’ beach clean-ups. Part of the proceeds from sales of 'Plastic is Forever' clothing are donated to the Eleuthera Institute and the Island School in the Bahamas.
Check out the video and gallery to see the shirts and the beach plastic that goes into making them.
