Gettin' Crafty at Sustainable NYC

The November installation of RePlayGround's monthly recycled craft series at Sustainable NYC, was especially exciting for us because we had RePlay's design-whiz Abby Kelly adding her skills and cheer to the group.
Crafty Cardboard is a fun workshop for us because we get to bring our popular Cereal Box Wallet to the table, and show people how easy it can be to re-purpose commonly trashed boxes. Images on cereal boxes or beer boxes are often cultural icons, and re-using them takes a playful spin on consumerism.
The Cereal Box Wallet is an inspiring project because of the ingenuity and simplicity of it's design, and that's really what we're all about at RePlayGround - using design to make upcycling a part of our every day lives!
Hurray for garbage!
Look out for our next FREE workshop Upcycled Holiday Ornaments, coming up on December 9th, from 6-7:30pm.
