This Mad Beautiful Game
5,000 people helped create this passionate dress!
Cereal boxes painted with recycled paint have been transformed into cascades of ruffles that contain over 5,000 eco-pledges—commitments of actions that people will take to help the environment. The ruffles cover a dress made from parachute scraps. This dramatic dress took 650 hours to create and was completed in 2011.
Which one of the following was NOT an eco-pledge sewn to this dress?
- I will shop locally.
- I will eat organic food.
- I will live in a tree and eat bananas.
- I will use my car less.
- I will reuse and recycle everything I can.
We don’t have to live like monkeys to live lighter on the earth! Every moment we make simple decisions that affect the planet. What can you do in your life to help the environment?
