Prom is a great part of high school. I was lucky enough to attend three proms, and each year, I got a fancier dress. My first year, it was simple and black; by the third year, it was sequined and glittery and so puffy I could not fit through some doors. I admit, my outfit choices probably were not the best decisions I have ever made. At the time though, I felt very cool.
However, I will never be as cool – or environmentally friendly- as Elizabeth Rasmuson.
Rasmuson is a high school junior in Garner, Iowa, and will be attending the prom with her boyfriend, Jordan Weaver, this spring.
Okay, so what’s so special about this couple? How about the fact that they made their prom attire out of gum wrappers?
