Check out this gown made from plastic shopping bags by Southern Oregon University art major Johanna Boy. Seeing her model this gown was a highlight of the Earth Day celebration at ScienceWorks Hands-On Museum.

Goodwill Industries of Southern Oregon hosted an Upcycled Fashion Contest Runway Show, featuring work by area students.

I hope next year that there is an entry division for adults. Nearly everything I wore -- a T-shirt depicting Kliban’s Cat on a Swing, a sweater with Om medallion, a bucket hat -- plus my shopping bag were repurposed from other things.
