Recycled Runway

Through August 20, 2017

Check out this celebration of creativity and sustainability! See 7 gowns from 7 designers in the Cleveland Aquarium’s Exploration Station. They’re not just any dresses—they were created from discarded materials and include tips on the recyclability of the Styrofoam plates, plastic forks, duct tape and trash bag that inspired them.

The fashion on display was created for Recycled Runway, an Erie Conservation District fundraiser that generated $10,000 for habitat improvements at Big Island Preserve. The vision for the area along Lake Erie’s Sandusky Bay includes a shoreline nature trail and reforestation with native vegetation. The park is a favorite fishing spot, haven for birders and popular canoe launch.

She now works from home as a freelance graphic designer and a chauffeur to her 3 busy kids. "Working on TipsFromTown has been a wonderful outlet for me. It renewed my love of publishing where I can design colorful, enticing pages online and allows me to share the things I love about being a mom." Heather grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, a place that still is near and dear to her. " After living in Brooklyn for 18 years and studying Graphic Design at Pratt Institute, she now lives in the Jersey burbs. "I love living so close to NYC, but in my heart, I'm an Ohio girl."
