Although we should be thinking about the environment every day, we dedicate one day of the year to focus specifically on issues affecting the environment.

Today’s goal should be doing at least one good deed

Discarded Items Make a Fashion Statement

What a way for people to keep in the spirit of EARTH DAY but create garments that use everyday garbage materials.

Designer Gary Harvey, (formerly with Levi, Dockers), organized the second year of The GreenShows, a fashion show which took place at an eco-friendly apartment complex in New York City’s East Village during NYC Fashion Week.

Models wore outfits made out of the leftover newspaper, a variety of sustainable materials including military gear, laundry bags and trashed clothes such as trench coats and biker jackets.
