Innovative start-ups from around the world are recycling and reusing waste to make new products. By incorporating sustainability into their brands, they can provide eco-friendly products that consumers can buy with a clear conscience. Revolve looks at three brands that repurpose the old to create something new.
“Many of my public works use recycled/reclaimed materials, transforming them into new contemporary forms connecting the past and future sustainably: recycle, re-use, reclaim, refurbish, restore, repurpose and revitalize. My goal is to use as much recycled materials as is possible within the limits of time and budget. I feel good using such materials and enjoy the search to find new and different ways to incorporate reclaimed elements into my art.”

Images of “Art Fencing” in El Paso, Texas, USA
This project was part of the City of El Paso, Bataan Bridge Project. It used 100 feet of 6′-9’ high “Art Fencing” over a railroad bridge crossing. Many of the stainless steel elements were reclaimed from scrap yards and cut, arranged, welded and polished into a new vibrant work that conceptually conveys the surrounding land, rivers, cities, and means of transportation.
