These silcone rubber bands by Japanese designers Yumiko Ohashi and Masanori Haneda are simply cool and a playful and unique way to tie things together. These stretchy animal rubber bands will return to their original shape after use and come in two different animal sets: Zoo and Pet. With 6 designs per set, there are approximately 24 wicked animal rubber bands per set.

These animal rubber bands are an attempt to bring longevity to items that are often thought of as disposable. Why would anyone want to throw away a cute animal rubber band? By creating items that people want to hold on to the goal of waste reduction can be met.
