As a new idea for our Trash Fashion blog, I though it might be a good idea to update at least once a week either a fact about recycling or an easy way you can help to better the environment. With that, I would also post a cool picture of some Trash Fashion piece of clothing or accessory for inspiration. So here it goes for the first one. Like this post if you would like me to continue doing this.
Compost nonrecyclable cardboard and paper
“You can reduce the volume of your trash by 80% simply by sorting your packaging, and composting all waste that is suitable. Yard trimmings, food residue, and other compostable items account for about a quarter of our annual waste. You can add some types of nonrecyclable paper and cardboard to your compost as well. Their fibers will aerate the compost and thus help the organisms that cause decomposition” (Bourseillier).
Here is a beautiful recycled dress from the TV series ‘Project Runway’. This dress has all of the modern elements from the sweetheart neckline to the ruffled mermaid style skirt. This screams chic prom dress.
