Bollywood Billboards to Beautiful Bags

with one comment

I believe in recycling and try to do my bit wherever possible. Recycling conserves resources, saves energy, helps protect the environment and reduces landfills….why wouldn’t you want to recycle?! It is only recently though that I came across the term Upcycling. Upcycling is using waste and converting it into something of better quality or value.

Initiated by designer Nupur Goenka ”Lets” is an eco-friendly company that saves dying objects and gives them a new life. Here are a few of their handmade, one-of-a-kind bags and laptop covers that are durable, water-resistant & easy to clean. 100% made of left overs the materials used to create these bags are plastic of old billboard signs and sarees & leather bits from factory wastes.
