Here it is – the first sustainable gown to kick off Livia Firth’s Green Carpet Challenge at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards. It’s made from recycled plastic bottles.

As the eco-fashionista explained earlier, Armani agreed to design the gown (his first-ever sustainable piece) saying her “enthusiasm and dedication to this cause have been very inspiring for me. Awareness for the environment is a topic that’s very important for us all: we cannot avoid it.”

While other celebrities are expected to participate this year, Firth apparently is using the Globes as a sort of recruitment tool for any that might be interested. “Today is only me throwing #GreenCarpetChallenge to the celebrities to join it!,” she tweeted to the site Grist. “Might need a bit of ur help!”

Next up for the 2012 Green Carpet Challenge, more sustainable designs from the likes of designers Tom Ford, Gucci, Chanel, Yves, Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Paul Smith, Valentino, Roger Vivier, Alberta Ferretti, and Ermenegildo Zegna.

Correction: This is not Armani’s first sustainable design. As Jason Olive pointed out, the fashion icon has been dabbling with sustainable materials for years – including a hemp tuxedo in 2010 for actor Woody Harrelson

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
