The Great White North may be steeped in nature that residents fight to preserve, but Canadians still generate a whopping 35 million tons of garbage every year. To draw attention to the excess waste produced by citizens, Environment Canada challenged 16 artists from the fields of fashion, hairstyling, cabinetry, and the visual arts to transform piles of trash into haute-couture creations. Currently on display at the Biosphere Environmental Museum in Montreal, O.N.E. Outfits From a New Era will make you think twice about consuming more than you need.
