Who doesn’t love purses or bags made from recycled materials? How about one made from a recycled billboard?! The etsy user Seen1 has done just that! He or she (I’m not sure) has taken old Asian advertising banners and turned them in to different products that are colorful and unique.
Another featured etsy user, NottyPooch, also uses recycled billboards, but uses them to make journals, laptop sleeves– even planters and storage bins.
I think I need one of those planters! They have loops of jute on the side that are removable so you can even use it as a hanging planter. Too cool! Also a big fan of the journal with a little loop for your pencil!
I love that there are people out there creative enough to reuse and upcycle the products I would never think to use, and turn them in to something so fun and eco-friendly! Just goes to show that the old saying one man’s trash in another man’s treasure is so true.
