Gallery: Briefcase Made from a Recycled Macbook Box


We were glad to see that we’re not the only ones that, upon unpackaging our shiny new macbook, thought it was such a shame to use such a lovely case just for packaging material. Rather than ditching or storing the quite useful cardboard box, Spring Greening finalist Alison Cromie decided to cover it with fabric and turn it into a case for crafting supplies. We loved her simple act of turning future garbage into a stylish and useful briefcase, and we think that Alison deserves a place in our Spring Greening DIY Design Contest. If you feel the same way then cast your vote for her project today!

    Excellent use. I do the same for my craft stuff. The Hemp Hoodlamb boxes are particular good for this, and even have hemp plastic handles!
