The Recycled Paper Bowl is an ingenious attempt to reuse paper waste and create something of practical significance. The 3D object was constructed from 390 pieces of recycled paper.

The Recycled Paper Bowl works great for storing keys, jewelry and other small possessions. The base of the bowl is made from acrylic, which has both an elegant aesthetic side and a very functional side.

If you're interested in acquiring your own paper bowl, you can purchase it through its Etsy page.

Implications - The green revolution has informed a large part of the ethical stance of today's youth consumers. These consumers prize the minimization of waste and the reduction of CO2 emissions. Companies can court these consumers by creating campaigns that highlight their initiatives to not only reduce their own waste, but also reuse it in innovative ways.
