More and more, businesses are developing technologies and skills that allow them to capitalize on recyclable trash by turning them into clothes, recycled purses and fashion accessories. “Trash” items like plastic bottles, food wrappers, and old newspapers are now being turned into things that you can look and feel good wearing. Green fashion, then, is becoming an increasingly practical and stylish way of promoting eco-consciousness and fighting global warming.
Also, by choosing to include green gifts in your giving habits, you can share your passion for green fashion. Presenting a friend or family member with a well-designed bag or accessory made from recycled materials will give your loved one something that is not only enjoyable and practical, but is a statement about the underrated value of “trash.”
People don’t normally associate the words “trash” and “recyclable” with fashion and style. After all, it is hard to imagine going to the mall or a party sporting a bag made out of, say, discarded bags of potato chips.
But more and more brands are dedicating themselves to green fashion, and the results have been impressive. This year’s World Cup has already seen one of its teams wearing jerseys made from recycled polyester and plastic bottles. And one of the main characters in a recent fashion-oriented major motion picture made use of a handbag also made from recyclables.
If you’re not convinced, just take some time to explore the many kinds of recycled purses and accessories that are now available to those who want to do their part for the environment while looking their best. You’ll quickly find that such products cover a wide range of tastes from colorfully loud to stylishly subdued; from simple and earthy to aggressively metallic.
The variety of choices that green fashion offers can benefit yourself as well as your friends and family. Whatever your loved one’s age and taste, there is probably a green gift you can find that will brighten up his or her face.
What's more, giving presents made from recyclables will help more people see that with a little determination and creativity, we can draw out a lot more value from our resources than we do at present. Eco-consciousness doesn’t have to stop at professionally made and commercially available products. After all, green gifts are a statement, and people carry statements wherever they go, with or without the item itself.
Who would have thought that fashion and responsibility could go hand-in-hand? But it seems that they can, after all.
Supporting and patronizing green fashion and green gifts is one more way that each of us can do our share in participating in and advocating environmental concern. Fashion articles made from recyclables not only serve as a physical reminder to anyone sporting them, but can also serve as a take-off point for eco-related discussions, since family, friends and even strangers will probably be curious to know more about these uniquely stylish pieces.
