Inspiration. . . . . .

Some ideas for Christmas waste. . . . . . . .

I was looking through some of the other Bolg's that I follow (Inhabitat and I came across this, a simple yet stylish why to reuse rabbis.
Here sweet rappers have been used to make different types of bags just by using different sweet rappers.
I thought that it was appropriate to put up on my blog just after Christmas as i am sure that many of us have so much waste after Christmas especially sweet rappers.

Talk about trash to treasure! Where the rest of us saw a candy wrapper, Ecoist founders Helen and Jonathan Marcoschamer saw a material that could be re-used to create unique handbags. And they didn’t just stop at candy wrappers, they also use food packaging, soda labels, subway maps, and newspapers to weave together their stylish, study handbags. Unsurprisingly, the broad range of materials have yielded diverse aesthetics: from the bright and colorful to repeating motifs. The company offers a variety of sizes and shapes, so the eco savvy can show their style with something as small as a coin purse or as large as a tote. Now a selection of Ecoist’s handbags, including their popular Every/Any (three shown above left), are available through the Inhabitat Shop.
