In the spirit of recession and ecological awareness, Dutch design collaborative Platform21 is calling out the obvious: recycling is not really environmentally friendly or thrifty. Recycling is still responding to consumption and it’s time to take responsibility for what we buy, utilize, and waste.

Vintage has never been cooler. DIY has never been so practical. Frugality is style.

    What a great idea!! We love creative ways to recycle, like slicing up cardboard boxes and using them as ink scoopers. However, Platform21 is putting it on a whole new level!
