Diane Steverlynk created Cardboard Coverings by taking worn boxes and manufactured into soft and versatile material--perfect for a blanket.

Diane Steverlynk’s design is a wonderfully eco-friendly way to reuse old cardboard boxes, that usually go to waste after just one use.

She also kept the origins of the boxes intact, with instructions and labels adorning the blankets for a bit of personality.

Implications - Upcycled products are no longer simply for the eco-minded consumer or someone who appeals to a vintage or retro style. Recycling is becoming a necessary aspect to most businesses, especially as people are more aware of pollution and waste management in their own communities. Another implication is that companies in all industries will be positively impacted by more transparency in terms of waste and recycling.
