Bettina Reichl is a packaging and fashion expert who demonstrates how men and women can look good environmentally. Out of Garbage is a project she has created with women in Sri Lanka to design and tailor unique fashion collections using plastic waste. In addition to an ecological one, the project also has a social component, as it enables women to get education and training. The project progress can be tracked in a separate online blog. Bettina Reichl also heads R&D at the Verpackungszentrum Graz, which has already won the international packaging industry Oscar for sustainable product packaging, with the WorldStar Packaging Award.
