Earth Day - Best Green Gifts #4 - Recycled Gifts

By recycled gifts we don't mean that you take a gift you don't like and give it to someone else. Ok, why that is a good idea, we mean gifts made from or created by recycled products.

Often many usable items end up in a landfill when they can be donated to charity, recycled and turned into art, clothing or jewelry. We have pulled together a variety of recycled gifts that may inspire you to think differently about what you throw away in the trash.

Here are of our favorites - View Green Gifts here
- Blue Recycled Glass Charm Necklace
This necklace looks great and will add a pop to any special evening

- Recycled Ski Wine Rack
Crafty and a conversation piece for skiers!

- Recycled Newspaper Handbag
I am not sure how they do this but what a great way to turn paper into something you'll want to show off

- Used Chopstick Soap Dish
I started thinking about how many chopsticks are used daily and there must be a lot more uses for chopsticks out there rather than throwing them in the trash.

- Recycled Wine Bottle Platters
The perfect accent for your next wine and cheese party. The platter is made from wine bottles we love it.

- Flip Flop Mats
Extra scraps from making flip flops are turned into doormats rather than being sent to a landfill.

- Records Turned into Bowls
I thought this was very cool, old records get a second life as a trendy accent piece.

- License Plate Mailbox
Funky, cool and unique the license plate mailbox turns something that is old into something new again.
