Brit & Co. is a lifestyle brand founded by Brit Morin that is always on the hunt for simple and creative projects, and products that aid in making life easier. Morin was recently featured on the Today Show to demonstrate how to transform old yoga mats and CD cases into usable products for the home.

With a stern concern for the environment on the rise, many people are seeking alternative ways to repurpose materials, instead of simply throwing them out. For example, yoga mats are not recyclable as they are made out of PVC, so a great idea is to wash them and use them as dish-rack mats, an iPad case and even flip flops. Old CD cases can be turned into custom makeup palettes, clocks and jewelry as well.
