Useless Junk turned into Creative DIY Products
- Jun 14, 2010
Yesterday I was browsing around when I bumped into this very nice article announcing the 2010 Inhabitat Spring Greening Contest Winners and decided to show you further details about it. The Spring Greening Design Competition challenged designers, artists and crafters to transform useless junk into beautiful DIY products, and the result is a list of very interesting and creative pieces. We will show here a list with some of the finalists and the winners of the competition. We really recommend you to visit the website to read more about each piece and its author (just click at the images and you will be redirected).
I really like contests like this one... not only contests, but I really dig the idea of pushing people to use their talent and creativity to design creative things using old stuff and several other useless junk that we can easily find around us, in our house, our neighborhood, etc. This is not only a way of developing nice recycled products but is also a way to reinforce that 'yes we can' have nice stuff made of 'forgotten useless things'. So check out this list and start thinking about what you could do with some regular things that are seating around your place and go for it... use your creativity and Do It Yourself! ;)
