Tetrapak containers have been the bane of recyclers lives for quite some time. It’s only recently that we’re once again able to recycle them in the UK, and many supermarket car parks now play host to Tetrapak banks where you can deposit your used Tetrapak type containers. I’ve never given much thought to recycling projects including used Tetrapaks, but the resourceful people at esprit cabane have come up with this cool coin purse made of a used Tetrapak container or two, with full instructions so that you can make one too. Or make a few and give them to your friends.

How about handbags? Aside from tetrapak, even license plates are being made into bags. It looks like there are a lot of materials we can recycle.
