Recycling 2.0: Biofueled Soap to Belvedere Jewelry
Recycling’s not exactly a new eco-habit — but eco-artists and entrepreneurs are still finding new ways to recycle and upcycle unexpected things. A few cool examples:
Further Soap. Recycled veggie oil’s apparently a gift that just keeps on giving! A Los Angeles couple uses the stuff to make biofuel for their car — then uses the biproducts to create Further Soap and Further Candle — sweet smelling products that’ll keep veggie car drivers clean and happy.
Beca Designs. Love your vodka cocktails enough to match your outfits to them? Beca Designs jewelry is made from old liquor bottles — from Belvedere to Kahlua — so now you can wear your drinking habit on your body.
Isthisyourluggage.com. An art director’s turning lost and abandoned airport luggage into a curious voyeuristic art of sorts. Unclaimed luggage is bought at an auction, photographed, then displayed on a website for all to browse and wonder about. The goal: To reunite people with some of the goods, thus allowing continued reuse.
Keep clean, look good, and always reuse before recycling!
