Stitched from 600 discarded Peanut M&M wrappers, this bright yellow one-of-a-kind gown is showcased at TerraCycle’s Green Up Shop window display as a reminder of the power of recycling. Commissioned by TerraCycle, Chicago couture designer Christina Liedtk crafted the dress by cutting and sewing the candy wrappers into individual flowers in bloom. Inspired by the pop-up shop’s theme, the designer explains how “the bottom of the dress expresses a collage of fully bloomed mature flowers.”

What was once a vacant retail space in New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal has been transformed into a pop-up shop commemorating the 40th anniversary of Earth Day (see our previous coverage here). Comprised of an exhibition area and boutique shop showcasing an array of New York’s green design and fashion as well as weekly lectures and eco-friendly film screenings ending May 1.
