I read a lot of magazines. The pile of magazines that builds up on my night stand is much like the leaning tower of Pisa! Sure I recycle them, but what Ecoist does with magazines is pretty unique and fascinating . They turn pre-consumer waste; magazines, newspapers, candy wrappers, soda packaging and even outdated New York City maps into Beautiful, One-of-a-Kind Handbags!

They collect these materials from factories that discard them due to misprints and overages, instead of having them end up in landfills! In the last 4 years, they have saved more than 15 million candy wrappers from going to landfills, pretty impressive! Taking these materials and repurposing them into a product of higher quality is what they call “Upcycling” , and some of their Upcycling Partners include The Coca-Cola Company, Disney, Mars, Frito Lay, Luna Bar, and AVEDA.
