This industry is not a threat to the environment because the green components which are used to create these fashion accessories were extracted from recycled and waste materials. Example of these eco-friendly materials are plastic, old shells, pebbles, used or wood remains and others. Aside from daily Fashion Show, the event features additional attractions and enhancements like craft demonstrations and design competitions which was highlighted by a Gala Night for the buyers at the Provincial Capitol Hall.
