5 Luxurious Recycled Accessories

If you've never looked at the soda can you were drinking from and thought, 'Hmmm, that would really make a great earring,' well, you can now be glad that someone did! Check out these 5 luxurious recycled accessories - you might be surprised just how elegant they are! 1. Recycled Soda Can Earrings This is probably my favorite of the list, because the earrings are adorable and elegant. It would be very difficult for anyone to guess that they were originally part of an ugly can! These are beautiful and could easily be matched with a sleek dancing dress...or your favorite pair of blue jeans. 2. Cute Totes Made from Recycled Traffic Signs These totes are absolutely adorable and while you probably wouldn't want to carry one of these with you everywhere you go - they would be stellar for a day at the beach or even a night on the town. They're flashy and eye-catching, and if you need a great gift for a unique friend, they're perfect! 3. Recycled Vinyl Record Cuff Bracelets I adore bracelets. When I saw this one, I knew it was making it onto the list. This is a super chic cuff bracelet that would be the perfect accessory for a summer sun dress or jeans and sandals. This is not your typical 'recycled jewelry,' and actually looks like you might have paid a pretty penny for it. The secret is that it's created from recycled vinyl records! 4. Recycled Newspaper Earrings These earrings are a bit whimsical without being flamboyant, and they're really cute. Who would guess that they were created from old newspapers? No one - that's who! These earrings would be perfect for any kind of outfit, from elegant dinner party to shorts and flip-flops. Plus, you can justify the purchase because it's good for the earth! What more could you ask for? 5. Recycled Skateboard Necklace Another favorite, the recycled skateboard necklace is the perfect accessory for the casual outfit. It has the perfect 'spring' look and would make a lovely gift for friends that are just as eco-conscious as you are! There is actually a variety of recycled skateboard jewelry, but this necklace is too cute to leave out. Next time you go shopping for accessories, start with eco-friendly or recycled ones. With most, it's very difficult to tell what they're created from and some of them are so elegant you'd just never guess that wearing them is a positive step for our environment!
