Due to the immense amount of plastic and waste that is taking over the environment, people have been putting their best foot forward, literally. Reebok fashion designer, Nicole McLaughlin has just created a new kind of way to save the world one step at a time.
“In a bid to promote sustainable fashion, the designer upcycles random materials to create extremely cool fashion pieces- including a bra made from cargo pants and very trendy summer sliders made form an old Capri Sun pouch,” according to Unilad. Mclauglin’s initiative is her creative way of saving the environment. By reduce, reusing and recycling rubbish, she has thought of a perfect way to make use of the once used.
Sustainable fashion is slowly become a new trend in today’s fashion world due to the overflow of trash consuming our environment. Even though all consumers don’t believe that reusing materials and trash is the most sanitary way of wearing clothes, Unilad says that “Nicole’s designs are encouraging people to become more ethically-minded consumers.”
The twist is that Mclaughin is not selling her creative masterpieces. In an act of protest, she believes that everything you see on Instagram should not be available to buy. Instead, people should take part in the initiative by becoming more sustainable.
