Radical Recycling

I like to think of myself as a creative person. I make my own art and crafts. I teach fine arts and craft arts. As a result, I am a collector of stuff to use for creative projects. Much of this stuff would otherwise have headed for the recycling bin. My projects are, however, small in comparison to what I came across recently. Here are 10 of the World’s Most Radical Recycling Projects

  • A Buddhist temple made of beer bottles
  • A bridge made of recycled paper tubes
  • An outdoor recycled art gallery
  • Shipping containers as sleek, modern homes
  • A jumbo jet hostel
  • Giant ‘Trash People’
  • Designer dresses made of maps and coffee filters
  • A scrap metal park
  • Dirty diapers transformed into diesel
  • An industrial waste rock garden
