Green Design - Recycle what you already have

I was pretty amazed on how much green design was actually lived (not only talked about) when I was strolling through the "Holy Shit Shopping market" in Berlin. It is nice to see that young designers take this topic really seriously- even though for some of them the green idea emerged out of economic pressure such as lack of capital for buying new materials. I guess the slow economy did have some more good sides to it than we thought. Like my mom always says "There is something good in everything bad". Anyhow, I would just say "Bravo guys!"

Unfortunately, I didn't have much time for more pics. Below you will find a few examples on how to reuse some of your oldies.
