From Trash to Treasure

Recycled decor gives new life to otherwise unusable objects.

There are entire photostreams on the photo-sharing website, Flickr, dedicated to cataloguing consumer items destined for landfill. But many people are trying to come up with a solution to non-recyclable packaging –artists in particular are responding to the challenge to recreate, reinvent and redesign the things which seem to have lost their value. Check out this collection of inventive and inspiring objects remade to have new form and function, and use them as inspiration to get crafty at home!
