If you're an eco-conscious shopper, you might consider picking up a garbage dress from Florida-based brand 'Garbage Gone Glam' for your next event.
Developed by designer Kristen Alyce, Garbage Gone Glam fashions party frocks from unlikely materials that are often thrown out without a second thought. Think candy wrappers, magazines and pop cans. It's hard to imagine that these items, so easily viewed as trash, could be fit for wear, but with Alyce's keen eye and crafty design aesthetic, they are what one might refer to as "trash-tastic."
Unfortunately, the price tag is a little hefty for something that could, technically, be recycled. A garbage dress from Garbage Gone Glam retails anywhere between $500 and $1,500. If anything, Alyce's story teaches us to think before we throw, lest we miss out on a lucrative business opportunity!
