E-Waste Makes Recycled Fashion Statement

Austin Designer Tina Sparkles has figured out what to do with e-waste. .... turn it into a fetching frock. How clever is that when you are raising money for charity in Texas? But I wonder about a couple of things.... like how do you clean it after you've partied hearty? Do old computer wires absorb wine, perspiration or do stains just roll right off.  Does this thing wrinkle or fade? And what happens if you rip or tear it on the dance floor?  

Never mind, I don't need to know.  It's a cool fashion statement that calls attention to the problem of E-waste and that's enough for me.  Go Tina
