I think we can all agree on the wastefulness of our society. So much of our trash is...trashed, filling already overflowing landfills. Today I ran across two different examples of repurposing items that would normally go to waste. I like to share these kinds of images as inspiration. If somebody can come up with projects like these, imagine the props and scenery that a drama class or creative problem solving team can come up with by simply sorting through the recycle bin!
The first is a chandelier using cast-off necklaces, bracelets and brooches. Spotted on Apartment Therapy, this piece was crafted by Floto + Warner.
This amazing "bead" curtain is a giant sized version, crafted from plastic bottles and other recycled plastic junk, hanging at the Jamsil Olympic Stadium in Seoul, Korea.
Here's a close up. Amazing, isnt' it??
So, what recycled materials are YOU working with these days??
