Actress Emma Watson met her idol, climate activist and former Vice President Al Gore in a special dress made out of “leftover fabric” and “recycled yarn”:

“Thank you to the loveliest Emilia for making me this beautiful custom piece. It was handmade in London using leftover fabrics consisting of 62% recycled yarn that was locally sourced, woven, and printed in Italy. I will be wearing this a lot!! 💚”

Um, there wasn’t enough leftover fabric and recycled yarn to make an entire dress?

“It was really surreal to meet and interview one of my idols. I think one of the many reasons I find Al Gore so compelling is that – even though he lost one of the biggest fights of his life to become president in 2000 (by such an unbearably close margin…) he has continued to do the work he set out to do despite humiliation, loss and defeat… the tides have been against him for years and he’s kept swimming. That to me is a hero. Thankfully climate change action is becoming mainstream and the tides have turned in his direction and now we are all swimming with him. Em xx”
