The Toronto Star offers tips for a greener prom for the young treehugger. Rather than spend $500 for a dress that you'll only wear once, why not go vintage? Or sport a bio-degradable dress made from bamboo and silk? For the vegan or budding wildlife activist, there are plenty of shoe options which don't derive from animal hide, and which are made in countries which pay their workers more than a few cents an hour. Buy local when it comes to your floral accessories, and definitely stay away from the acrylic nails and hair extensions.
