It would be easy to dismiss ladies' underwear made out of recycled materials as a gimmick, and maybe it is, but it can't be denied that at least it's an attractive gimmick. Artist Ingrid Goldbloom Bloch--who is often inspired by the sort of stuff found in hardware stores--has created this line of handmade "trashy" lingerie out of recycled cans, bottles, and other materials.
I doubt they'd work for day-to-day wear, but for special green occasions--say a naughty Arbor Day Ball--they'd be a perfect way to show off your eco-friendliness.
What's great is that they're not just about the idea; indeed these salvaged unmentionables actually look good. Were I the type to wear lingerie (I'm not), these would be on my list. If I ever get out of the basement and meet a girl, perhaps I'll let her in on this line of quasi-practical lady things.
