While the world impatiently waits for details regarding Kate Middleton’s royal wedding gown, one UK shopping center is hoping their design provides a bit of green inspiration.

The Manchester Arndale shopping centre is putting together a recycled royal wedding dress featuring hundreds of recycled plastic PET bottles and other materials such as plastic bags and plastic bottle tops.

The challenge is being spearheaded by sustainable designer Michelle Brand, Manchester Metropolitan University textile specialist Janet Bezzant and local dressmaker Di Faukner. The idea is to gather the needed materials from the center’s more than 240 retailers.

The recycled gown is expected to debut on April 15th – plenty of time for Kate to size it up for the big day on the 29th.
