Apparently, stealing milk meant for baby cows so that we can drink it ourselves isn't sufficient: Now one fashion designer has decided that we need to dress ourselves in milk too.
German designer Anke Domaske is constructing clothing out of thread that she spins from sour milk protein, suffering under the misconception that this constitutes “green” fashion. Considering that factory dairy farms produce enormous amounts of waste and greenhouse gasses, in addition to other environmental (and animal) abuses, clothes made of milk are about as eco-conscious as a Hummer. What's wrong with a nice organic cotton? Or even a soy suit?
Dressing oneself in environmental destruction and cruelty to animals? Smells rotten to me.
