Plastic bags are a serious environmental nuisance and if we don’t care enough to make a difference, things will go in a nasty direction. Some of us already started putting their imagination to work and create new ways to reuse and recycle.
Such is the case for these green wonders – Dacca or Dhaka, named after Bangladesh’s capital (one of world’s most plastic-bags-polluted cities), these booties are made of recycled plastic bags by the young Chilean industrial design student Camila Labra. Several layers of plastic bags fused together make the thick impermeable exterior material. The interior is made of quilted pique cotton. Sold for $45 these could start a serious eco-revolution if only people would be more aware and ecoconscious. How long till we actually start doing something to help the world? (via)
