Fashion finds- in your trash can?

Old magazines, tablecloths, dryer sheets, bottle caps…ever wonder what you can do with non-recyclable items? RIT Student Environmental Action League (SEAL) answers that question at its annual Project Runway Goes Green.

Students competed in the contest to design an outfit entirely out of non-recyclable materials. Then, at the fifth annual Imagine RIT festival, they showed off their creations to a panel of judges.

The winner was third year Industrial Design student Maddi Hoppy (pictured left). Her stunning white dress used an old tablecloth, coffee filters and a little bit of hot glue.
