Recycled Fashion Items

Handmade products have a unique presence in fashion. Most handmade products have less of a carbon footprint and can be composed of recycled materials.

Here are a few interesting handmade accessories designed from recycled materials.

Over at Terracycle they use waste wrappers such as M&M’s, Lunchables, and Capri sun’s to make designer upcycled bags. They use a program called the Brigade that encourages schools to collect waste and send it in to earn money for school funds; individuals can also participate. Terracycle’s products are offered at most Targets and Wal-Mart’s.

Another uprising trend is the swanky pull tab purses.

At the Ecoist they have a few designs for sale that are handcrafted in Brazil. The aluminum tabs are recycled from a local factory and washed. The tabs are then crafted into chainmail and stitched together to make purses. These are made from 98% recycled materials.
