Using discarded wood and old blankets, Studio Jo Meesters', “Odds & Ends, Bits & Pieces” is made out of 34 old blankets and old wood, creating eco-friendly woven furniture.

The “Odds & Ends, Bits & Pieces” uses the old blankets to create chairs, benches, and shelves. The woven designs are fun and earth-friendly, which is always a good combo. Take a look at the designs by Studio Jo Meesters above.

Implications - In an increasingly eco-conscious society, artworks, practical household items and even household appliances are being made with recyclable materials in an effort to reduce global carbon foot prints. These pieces are not just environmentally friendly, but stylish and functional -- three forces that work together to drive consumerism to heightened levels and attract consumers to socially conscious companies.
