Would you wear clothing made out of old newspapers, crushed glass, old detergent bottles and bits and pieces of aluminum cans?
If they looked like the duds Nancy Judd makes, you just might.
Judd is an environmental artist who makes award-winning fashion out of the stuff most of us throw away. And from now through the end of the year you can see her custom-designed recycled garments in the Recycle Runway exhibit at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT)
Here are a few samples:

For this outfit, plastic detergent bottles were cut into circles and hand-sewn onto a vintage bathing suit and shoes.
