Wednesday Wag Out!

Recycled Wallet

Check out this wallet made from a juice cartons. How cool is that? This guy in Portland found out that more than 510,000 tons of milk and juice cartons are generated every year in the U.S. and less than .05% ever get recycled. This bothered him so he started thinking about what he could do with the cartons and viola, the Credit Score wallet was created.

The wallet has an accordian construction with reinforced folds and four pockets. It holds up to 7 credit cards, your driver's license, and even some money. It has a velcro closure so your stuff doesn't fall out and the folds are tape reinforced so that it is nearly wear-proof. The best part about the wallet is that it's made in the good old U.S.A. Hooray!

Head on over to http://www.milkmuny.com/ to pick out the wallet that you like best from 24 different cartons styles. These guys also participate in 1% for the planet which puts a big smile on my face.

Recycled Bracelet

Did you ever wonder what happened to used guitar strings? Well today is your lucky day because I found a company that turns these strings into bracelets.

Mom likes this bracelet because it is red, white & blue, but there are lots of different colors to choose from. This one is one size fits all and can be bent and shaped to fit your wrist. The silver is even recycled and each bracelet is handcrafted.

They even have bracelets made from guitar strings that your favorite guitarist used. Mom has here eye on a bracelet made from Ben Harper's guitar strings, but I think she may put this on her Christmas list and let Santa bring it.yours handcrafted from recycled fine silver and guitar strings used and donated by the artist you select. The artists bracelets are sized and each one comes packaged in recycled DVD cases with certificates of authenticity. The profits are even donated to charities selected by the artists. How cool is that?

Rock and roll on over to http://www.wearyourmusic.org/ to check out all the cool bracelets. A percentage of the profits from every bracelet sold is donated to charities that support music so buying one of these bracelets is a win-win for everyone.

Recycled Door Mat

Mom has lots of door mats, but she doesn't have one like this. Master of the obvious maybe, but a conversation piece for sure.

This recycled rubber doormat is made from 100% recycled truck tires. Millions of truck (and car) tires are thrown away each year and people are starting to come up with some really creative ways to use them so they don't end up in landfills.

The doormat has durable nylon flocking and is washable. Mom likes that you can wash this doormat because let's face it, all doormats get dirty. You can use it indoors or outdoors but wherever you use it you are bound to get compliments.

This would also make a great gift, so check it out at www.re-modern.com. They have lots of cool items so I won't be surprised if you find many things you like. Mom may add this to her Christmas list.
