Saving our planet; one bag at a time

February 10, 2009

Refashion is a great concept. Kind of cradle to grave to cradle…

Ever imagined them yucky plastic bags could become fashionable and eco-friendly?

An exhibit held last month at an LA store featured one-of-a-kind dresses made from plastic bags and other recyclable materials, designed by local L.A. artists.

Reusing plastic grocery bags and other material like cardboard, mussel shells, string, burlap fabric, wire and Christmas lights, the designers created pieces to demonstrate “how a mundane object, often used as a trash receptacle, can create stylized, eye-catching, inspiring creations.”

The world over, plastic is going out of fashion. Several cities are bringing in legislations restricting the use of plastic and eco-friendly initiatives are garnering attention.

We at Norquest are also doing our bit in this direction. See

Green is “in” and you too can be part of the growing bandwagon of eco-conscious citizens. Get yourself a reusable bag to start with and you’ll be doing a lot towards saving the environment.
