Landfill Is Goldmine For Home Decor

VANCOUVER, Wash. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Landfill waste is the latest trend in interior design.

The Fourth Annual Recycled Arts Festival in Vancouver, Washington, this weekend (Jun. 27-28) will prove that junk like cans, plastic, and metal scraps can be recycled into chic, unique home decor.

Pieces featured at the fest will include yard art made from recycled metal and old rakes, old china that’s been glued to make a birdfeeder, a lamp made out of used chopsticks, and a wall clock made from vinyl records.

Festival project manager Sally Fisher says recycled creations not only reduce waste, but look good as new in homes.

Landfill trash can also be transformed into accessories – such as purses made from woven plastic bags – and couture clothing.

The fest will showcase a “Junk To Funk” fashion show where models will strut down the runway in creations such as a sparkly gown made from soda can tabs and a dress made out of used men’s ties.
