Scraptastic? Perhaps.

And in another bit of unconsumption news, Everyday Trash points to Made From Scrap, a San Francisco organization that does workshops on repurposing plastic bags into “wristlets,” old T shirts into pillows, and that sort of thing. I have slightly mixed feelings about this kind of thing, but they seem to have good intentions, and maybe it engages people in the underlying issues. Also, learning to do stuff like this is better than just buying the repurposed objects, I think.

Further diversion may be found at MKTG Tumblr, and the Consumed Facebook page.
