Commissioned by Target in 2002
The skirt, armbands and top are made from a Target employee’s old shirt and are accented with plastic Target bags. The jewelry is made from beads rolled out of cardboard product displays. In addition to the bags, the headdress incorporates fruit made from cardboard displays and a returned baseball game. The shoes were decorated with sequins. This ensemble took 100 hours to create.
Be an eco-leader in your workplace!
Businesses of all sizes can reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and air pollution by implementing green programs such as:
· Recycling office paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and aluminum.
· Purchasing supplies that contain recycled materials and are non-toxic.
· Building new structures that adhere to green building standards.
· Promoting carpooling and public transportation among employees.
Industry plays a crucial role in mitigating climate change in the design and manufacture of goods. Every stage of a product's life cycle-- extraction, manufacturing, distribution, use, and disposal-- indirectly or directly contributes to the concentration of GHGs in the atmosphere and affects the global climate.
