Hey there upcyclers of the world . . .
We recently held an event about GARBAGE or ¡BASURA! here in Oaxaca, Mexico and as a result of our presentation about upcycling (sobreciclaje) someone wrote to us to find out if we knew about any upcycled uses for cigarette butts. This guy is in Milan and he found one example of a Chilean clothing designer making a wool-like fiber out of the little guys. Click here to see more photos of these incredible pieces.
Poncho made from a fiber made from a mixture of purified cigarette butts and wool.
Does anyone else have any other ideas for upcycling butts?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
