Garbage Gone Glam, an organization and business dedicated to beautifying the Earth, is holding a very important eco-friendly date auction benefiting the planet and encouraging others to live a green lifestyle.
Garbage Gone Glam (GGG) was first founded in 2008 by Kristen Alyce. According to her website, “Inspired by a genuine desire to raise environmental awareness in an innovative way, Kristen fashioned her first dress entirely out of fashion magazines and plastic bags.”
Ever since then, her cause has taken off, and she continues to spread the green word, just like GGG is tomorrow on Thursday, Jan. 31 with its Glam Date Auction.
Held in West Palm Beach, Fla., the date auction will show off GGG’s latest eco-wear worn by bachelors and bachelorettes.
In addition to sending the important message that we can reuse items like plastic bags, plastic water bottles and old magazines to create fashion masterpieces, all proceeds go directly to environmental causes.
One of these causes is the Resource Depot, which is a reuse center that collects clean, safe and reusable donated items. These items would usually end up in landfills, but thanks to the Depot, they are distributed – for free – to teachers, daycares and other educational-related organizations.
As its website reads, “Garbage Gone Glam’s mission is to raise awareness of environmental and health issues facing our ‘throwaway’ society.
Through fashion shows, environmental expositions, and other events we draw attention to the volume and variety of trash thrown away every day. We aim to inspire a little change in the lives of our audiences and those who join our mission.”
If you’re looking to participate and contribute to GGG’s eco-friendly mission, check out its website, and attend the date auction tomorrow night.
