Loomstate Plastic T-ShirtsWe've all heard the old saying that one man's trash is another treasure, and now Barbara de Vries is putting it to the test. The jewelry designer has collected plastic refuse from Bahamas beaches and used it to decorate Loomstate T-shirts for a new limited edition collection.

You wouldn't expect that discarded litter could look so stylish adorning a T-shirt, but de Vries has the sort of fashion eye few of us are blessed with. The trash actually looks a little like beads strung around the necks of the tees. It'll certainly make a good conversation starter, which is a great way of getting that environmental message out there.

In keeping with the fashion collection's eco-friendly ethos, each T-shirt is crafted from sustainable organic cotton.

If you'd like to take these pieces of debris back to the beach next summer, look for the Loomstate x Plastic is Forever shirts at the Loomstate website and Barneys New York stores next spring.
