HEAR YE, HEAR YE
At the Yesterday’s News Green Catwalk Event and Workshop in New York City on Tuesday, four leading sustainable designers—Samantha Pleet, Bahar Shahpar, Lara Miller, and Restore Clothing’s Anthony Lilore—unveiled a quartet of looks made almost entirely of recycled newspaper. Part of an initiative by the cat-litter manufacturer to promote its new recyclable packaging, the Do-Gooder Design Challenge culminates in an auction of the newspaper garments on eBay, with the proceeds going to a charity of each designer’s choice: Kiva, Riverkeeper, The Land Connection, and Trees for the Future. In addition, Yesterday’s News is making a $6,000 donation to each charity. Meow.
