Recycled green products new year inspiration

I look and admire the creativity of its creators. Parts that usually go to trash can get new life and not quite look trashy! New life as lamps, tables, stools, pillows...

Few years ago somebody got a great idea and decided to organize one day trade exhibition, where you can see and shop recycled green products which are the result of human creative minds.

Going to such exhibition is great way to find new products and get away from commercial offer – I am really fed up with shops stuffed with all same products manufactured in Asia.

I am more and more searching for new interesting products that can make the surrounding  look modern and more personalized. 


Remember old vinyl music records? 

 Stool made of triple cardboard and craft paper, no glue, just fittings.

Table made of triple cardboard and craft paper, no glue, just fittings. 

Pillow made of jute sack, hand printed. 

Lamp made of old telephone.

Table made of old washing machine.
I recommend further reading Junk Beautiful: Room by Room Makeovers with Junkmarket Style  (yes, this is an affiliate link, but if you like my content, why not to click it? it would be nice "thank you for your work").

They are all great, If I had to pick one I think it would have to be the Vinyl record note pad.

What wonderful ideas! I really liked the washing mashine-table. And if you can store things (or light candles) inside the cylinder it's just perfect.

Very wonderful information! I particulary love the new table made from the washing machine. The only problem is that you would have to find someone to make it or be extremely crafty.
