Go Green: Recycled Magazines - UPDATED!!!

I have been browsing the internet for new accessories and fun home decor and I came across two new recycled magazine products at They are a recycled vase ($18) and a recycled photo frame ($16). At this rate, we could decorate our entire apartment with recycled magazines. What will they come up with next?

This week's environmentally conscious accessory is for the home. (Yes, I realize that this blog is about fashion accessories, but I make the rules here). I was shopping at Pier 1 last week and I loved their new recycled magazine basket. The basket, made of recycled magazines and newspapers, is handstitched and is a great fabric option for a greener world. The basket sells for $35 (USD) and can be seen online at 
And remember, when you are done with the mags you store in here, RECYCLE!

Wal-Mart also carries a similar accessory for the home, made of the same recycled newspapers and magazines. This item is a mirror, sold in a square or round shape. The price for either shape is $38.88. For more information, visit
