According to the MUO, the sash is made from 100% post-consumer recycled fabric and thread and with ethically-produced rhinestones. The organization added that the sash is created in a bid to remain firm in its commitment to sustainability and protecting the environment.
“We hope our commitment to sustainability will reduce the overall amount of plastic and waste in the environment. This is one small step of many we hope to make in the future as small actions by corporations and organizations will have the greatest impact on making a greener future for all,” the MUO said in the caption.
