From Trash to Fashion: Recycled Accessories
Green style is in, and trash has never looked better. Seven Ply's Lynn Weiler turns broken skateboard decks into earrings, bracelets, and necklaces (pictured here). The company's name comes from the deck's seven layers. If you're a skateboarder wondering what to do with a busted board, Weiler also accepts donations.
Complement your green style with these hip recycled accessories for eco-fashionistas:
- Smart Glass recycles glass (including Coke bottles) into distinctive jewelry.
- Teamwork makes bags from salvaged sails and tire tubes.
- Sasja Saptenno designs unique necklaces from bike tires.
