Plastic water bottle waste can be of many uses from containers to decors to accessories. Here is a jewellery made out of them ..
Packaging industry is a huge industry which involves a lot of plastic for packaging,, wrapping and much more. When a manufacturer makes a product, the product is finally delivered to the end user which is us ” The People “. We buy a lot of products every day from the time we wake up till we goto sleep like milk covers, cereals, grains, chocolates to our super market visit and much more. We buy totally new plastic package from the seller and throw it in the DUMP after using it. We do play a role in the global pollution and its time for us to realize and make as much as maximum reuse we can do with the product.
This ring is made from the left over chocolate wrapper’s. Chocolate wrappers are folded, rolled and glued together to make this high fashioned sustainable fashion Ring.
Hope we all can come with more ideas. Do write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or share us your upcycled image / photographs to showcase in website and Facebook ..
E-Waste are waste discarded from electronic items and 25 percent of e-waste is from computers in India. 20 to 50 million metric tons of e-waste are disposed worldwide every year. All these e-waste produces immense amount of toxic waste when incinerated. We throw away phones which has got valuable metals in it and thats why we get more recycling value on Apple phones. Its better to reuse products as much as we can before throwing it in the dump. Reusing / Upcycling saves the product from ending up in trash and it helps in reducing the carbon foot print of that particular product.
Upcycle it will try to find solutions for the product to not end in trash. Here is a choker made from e-waste keyboard scrap. we all have that non working keyboards once in a while and they can serve as many uses when they are dismantled. I have made one jewellery out of them. Lot more upcycled products made with that one keyboard are on the way.

Fabric Jewellery made from Fabric. Fabric is an amazing material to make Jewelleries and here is one idea
Fabric Flower Jewellery which is made from waste left over fabric collected from Tailor shop. All these scraps come in different textures and we can do amazing creations with them. One such is the jewellery i made to match the Fish cut patiala pants i am wearing. I am a big time bohemian fan and i wanted to try something similar to that style. I started making this fabric flower to make headband and it ended up in Jewellery.
Styling : This fabric flower is light in shade which will go well with Dark shade top, in which the accessory will be projected. Choice of fish cut patiala was to match the flower again. When we talk about styling ” its not what we wear, how we carry the outfit”
