I posted about a brand named Defy Bags before that recycled old vinyl billboards and made bags out of them. You're probably wondering why in tar nation anyone would want to recycle old billboards. Well, you may not know this but the vinyl they used can not be used for anything else afterwards so they're just thrown in the landfill. What they do at Defy Bags with the vinyl can be seen here pretty neat stuff.
What do I think about their bags? I was lucky enough to get my hands on one and it just came in today! My first impression about the bag when it came out of its package was that this bag was tough... very tough, I mean this bag could take a heavy duty beating and still stand strong my second impression was having a bag that is recycled from old material is a lot cooler after you own the bag rather than just reading about it on a site. [Read on what I did with the bag here!]

The Text-ile Chair was cleverly named an designed by Dante Bonuccelli for the UMUL 2009 PROJECT. It’s made of recycled keyboards so I don’t think it’ll be comfortable. It looks like just a concept for now.

Freitag bags look so awesome! They are a little on the expensive side but they are made out of recycled parts. The design looks pretty cool and I don't remember the last time I had a back pack. I've been wearing only messenger bags for about a year now. They have all sorts of bags, but I personally like their messenger bags.
FREITAG products are made from original recycled materials – used truck tarps, used car seat belts, used air bags and used bicycle inner tubes. Because the materials are tough, the products are too. Because we’re Swiss, our quality standards are too. And because it is made from an original piece of tarp, every single FREITAG product has its own, individual design.
Their messenger bags are about CHF 395 + 55(shipping) which in U.S. dollars is about $390 There is a large price to pay for recyclable goods!

These hard drive clocks are hand-made from recycled hard drives, each one taken apart, painted and fitted with a timepiece.
I want one even though I hate reading analog clocks. I am such a geek.
Unfortunately, they are sold out. Oh well.
