Etsy Finds: Repurposed Back to School

Arm your kids or yourself with reusable supplies made from repurposed materials!  Some of these may last through their entire academic career.

I love this bag by Urchin Bags!  It's made from recycled seat belts, air bags and a used bike inner tube.

The 'keep safe' bag made from recycled seat belts $105

Pencils handmade from recycled newspapers also come with a carrying case by beladonna.

Recycled Newspaper Pencils (set of 12) $11.50

 Perfect decor for a dorm room!  A planter made from recycled books to make you look smarter than you already are by Recycled Novels.

Book Planter - "Murderous Plan" $25"

This reusable sandwich "envelope" by lkd Designs is made from recycled fabric and can be used along with her reusable lunch and snack bags for a complete eco-friendly, handmade kit.

Reusable Sandwich Envelope Made from RECYCLED fabric $12

Have several kids to buy for?  Or just a collector of vintage staplers?  Find a set of 5 along with lots of other vintage goodies at Leaping Lemming.  I am loving the aqua and chrome one!

5 USA Made Vintage Staplers $24.95

  1. Staplers are the tools that bind our lives. They are also cheap entertainment:) Thanks for including our collection.
