Rubbish Design Creates Cute Products Out of Unexpected Materials

It's only when we take a step back and really look at the one-use products around use that we can begin to understand the perplexing issue of disposability, and that's something that Rubbish Design looks to combat with their quirky lineup of products.

The detergent bottle flower vase in particular is a truly unique piece of upcycled art that makes use of and comments on a previously disposable container. Laundry detergent is usually associated with harmful phosphates that pollute water systems and deter natural growth. Making the container into a vase is a witty way of looking at cultural waste and allows us to think more critically about our consumption.

Rubbish Design also makes a number of other innovative designs such as coffee can light fixtures and other wacky, yet beautiful pieces. Stats for Upcycled Soap Bottle Vases Trending: Older & Average
