One of the most impressive submissions we received for our DIY design contest was this eco sparkly recycled plastic jewelry by Kumvana Gomani.

    The artist’s job is to make you see. Ms. Gomani’s work reminds me of the bull’s head sculpture Picasso created from old bicycle parts. Her jewelry is exquisite and inspiring.

    I think that the idea of simply taking something that would have been thrown away and making it into something else is only going to postpone the useful life of the material, after which it will just have to be thrown away anyways.

    luckily these things are made from recyclable plastic bottles. But, just simply changing the use of the materials doesn’t change the chemical makeup. It is still a material that we should not have been consuming in the first place much less putting back into our environment.

    Not to mention, most people don’t want to wear trash. IT might be ok now because being green is a fad, but in the long run reusing trash doesn’t help, its still trash and its still not recyclable in that the useful life is only pushed back.
