Could you be the next Trashionista?

Gateshead, Newcastle UK

Residents of Gateshead have recently put on a catwalk show dedicated to rubbish and recycling, known as 'trashion'. Trashion is a term for art, jewelry, fashion and objects for the home from used, thrown-out, found & repurposed elements. Devised by members of Gateshead Youth Assembly (GYA), the event invited everyday primary school, secondary school and youth group in Gateshead to create an environmentally friendly costume.

Councillor Michael McNestry, cabinet member for sustainable communities at Gateshead Council, said, "This is a way of bringing the recycling message home to people all across Gateshead, and allowing the borough's young people to work together, be creative and use there imagination, learn about their own impact on the environment."
