Can’t wait for prom? Did you know you can be uber-psyched for your special day and still make a green impact? Yep, meet The Princess Project. This video segment from Eco News gives you the scoop on the latest prom trend for 2008 – recycled dresses! Think about it, most prom dresses are worn one time, for one night, then it gets relegated to the back of the closet never to be seen again. Sure you might know a fashion forward friend who can actually redesign an old prom dress into a stylish new creation, but most of us just sigh and leave our prom dress alone with those other “never to be worn again, but I really can’t get rid of this” items like the cashmere sweater with the moth hole, that cute tank top that will never fit again and of course, skinny jeans. Why not put that prom dress to good use and donate it?
The Princess Project promotes self-confidence and individual beauty by providing free prom dresses and accessories (love that – you always need to accessorize!) to high school girls who cannot otherwise afford them. It’s a great project and you’ll feel good participating.
