Recycling is funky, fashionable and fabulous. Just ask those behind the scenes at ‘Recylced Runway.’ Nearly every seat filled the Sherman Event Center Saturday to check out stunning headpieces made from recycled materials from Bang Salon. Product boxes, foils, and bubble wrap are just some of the items given a second life. From trash to couture- Some headpieces were accompanied with festive dresses made from plastic bags, newspapers and magazine pages.
With such a bright response to the event organizer and director of SustainAbility, Rachel Nathan, said it’s not one and done. “We have definitely talked about doing the event again. Perhaps making it a semi annual gathering or something of that nature. People showed so much support.”
