Thinking Outside the Bin

You know you’re a true recycler when you look at a bowl of pistachio shells and you think to yourself, “I must be able to use these for something.” The authors of the How Can I Recycle This? blog began with this thought and are now proving to the world that you can repurpose virtually anything. What’s really cool about this blog is that it acts as a public (and global) forum for all to offer up their own unique and often ingenious repurposing ideas.

The Bendant Lamp

This piece is noteworthy on so many levels but what I really love about it is the idea that it has the potential to give the average everyday person the feeling of being creative. The Bendant Lamp is ingeniously designed. Each piece comes flat, you bend the leaves however you choose and…voila! A one-of-a-kind designer pendant lamp designed by you! MIO has been creating sustainable products since 2001.
