If you have too many eco tote bags lying around, you can always turn them into unique throw pillows.

NotCot has come up with this new idea of making use of reusable bags. Labeled as recession chic and multi-purpose, all you have to do is stuff your tote bag full of cotton to make your own couch cushions!

Implications - The rise in environmentalism led to a plethora of "eco-friendly" reusable tote bags sold at grocery stores, beauty boutiques and other retail shops -- a stunt meant to boost profits and reinforce the "green" message. The DIY movement has in turn embraced these tote bags, turning them into cushions that convey the owners' focus on sustainability and recycling.
