The RePlayGround is my latest favorite site. These guys are designers with an eye for garbage. Too cool! They take stuff destined for the landfill (or even for the recycling bin) and turn it into neat, useful items.
The site has directions for you to make your own cool repurposed items, such as the wallet pictured here that was made from a cereal box. And they even work with companies to take their trash to turn it into neat corporate gifts. And if you’re sitting on a huge pile of something that’s just become scrap, contact them to see if they could use it for a project. Old calendars, wine corks, bottlecaps – just about anything can be repurposed to make a cool gift. Check it out!!
