Gown Made From Recycled M&M Wrappers


TerraCycle’s Green Up Shop—a short-term showcase for the company’s upcycled products—as well as a life-size gown stitched from discarded candy wrappers.

TerraCycle commissioned the one-of-a-kind dress from Chicago couture designer Christina Liedtke, who was inspired by both the pop-up shop’s spring theme and Earth Day’s upcoming 40th anniversary.

To create the gown, more than 1,800 flowers were individually cut and sewn from 600 Peanut M&M wrappers, a time-consuming process that took over 100 hours of labor.
