Seattle diver Laura James’ “Duwamish Thriftshop” photo won her a kayak trip with Macklemore.

Seattle diver Laura James’ trash-inspired fashion has netted her a kayak trip on the Duwamish River with thrifty hip-hop icon Macklemore. The contest was part of the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition’s “River For All” campaign to raise awareness of the environmental and health threats of toxic pollution in Seattle’s Duwamish River.

James’ winning photo, titled “Duwamish Thriftshop,” shows her in a gown made of trash collected from the river.
