Blog of the Week: recycleD bin

Meet Jenny K, the cool University of Cincinnati Interior Design student who owns the blog recycleD bin. Jenny has found a great way to recycle plastic bags to make some very fun and practical container sets. Here’s what she has to say about her blog:

HEY THERE! I’M JENNY K – A FOURTH YEAR (SOON TO BE 5TH YEAR/SENIOR) INTERIOR DESIGN STUDENT AT UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI. I LOVE FOOD, MY FRIENDS, SUSTAINABLE LIVING, DESIGN, AND CINCINNATI OF COURSE!

LAST QUARTER IN MY FURNITURE DESIGN CLASS I MADE A PROTOTYPE OF THREE DIFFERENT SIZED CONTAINERS MADE ENTIRELY OUT OF PLASTIC GROCERY/SHOPPING BAGS. IT WAS REALLY WELL RECEIVED, AND SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE SUGGESTED THAT I THINK ABOUT MAKING MORE AND SELLING THEM. IT’S STILL IN PROTOTYPE STAGE, BUT I AM IN THE PROCESS OF REFINING THE DESIGN AND GETTING THE WORD ABOUT ABOUT HOW COOL THEY ARE. EACH SET OF THREE CONTAINERS USES OVER 300 PLASTIC BAGS – 500 MORE SETS AND AN ENTIRE TON OF PLASTIC WOULD BE SAVED FROM THE LANDFILL!

SO. THIS SET OF DITTIES AND THOUGHTS IS MY PERSPECTIVE OF LIVING GREEN IN CLIFTON (IT’S HARD BUT DO-ABLE!) I’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU AND WHAT YOU THINK OF MY THOUGHTS AND MY DESIGN.

And, Jenny is selling these containers. Check out her blog for pricing. Let’s help her keep a ton of plastic bags out of the landfills!

She bakes an awesome cake too! Thanks for the CWB birthday cake Jenny!
