@NYC Toy Fair 2009 – Another past favorite, UBERSTIX – they make toys/kits that you need to recycle other things to build. Straws, ice cream sticks, paper clips, water bottles, egg cartons and more. Pictured here is a ship you build and use tossed cups/bottles to make it float, along with other trashed items to build the sail and more. It’s called the Scavenger, nice. They also make ÃœBERARC” – it’s for budding architects, students and engineers – you can construct giant “emerald city” looking structures, unlike other building systems you get real blueprints in a tube. We liked these folks so much that we stock their kits in the Maker Shed!

  1. This is a nice example to encourage more people to consider recycling their used paper or plastic items. Aside from paper and plastic, metal or old electronic gadgets can now be shredded and recycled as well.

    It is truly inspiring to know that people around the world are indeed making an effort to minimize waste accumulation in landfills and to teach others that recycling is not only practical but it can also teach us creativity.

  2. At first glance, you will not notice that these marvelous depictions of a city are made from scrap materials. This goes to show that we can all put recycling to a whole new level and not just with paper or plastic products. This is indeed inspiring especially to those who advocate ‘green’ living. These days, our trash can be converted to various kinds of ways lie the one shown above. In addition to that , I also rea another article on recycling that others might find interesting at:
