The beverage industry is well known for its long-standing commitment to the environment. Here at Sip & Savor, we not only recognize the importance of doing our part to help protect and preserve our planet, but we applaud all efforts to promote recycling by reusing our industry’s 100 percent recyclable packaging in fun and creative ways.

We recently shared the story of a resourceful Colorado teenager who sewed her own prom dress using the tabs from soda cans. It seems that fashion designers – amateurs as well as professionals – across the globe are making recycling fashionable, and we are fascinated by their creative approaches.

Take a look at this innovative company out of San Francisco and Brazil which is helping the cause by turning tabs from soda cans into bags, belts, brooches, guitar straps – you name it, they seem to make it! You can even learn how to create a necklace of your own by visiting their website.

Regardless of your propensity for arts and crafts, remember to “Think Inside the Bin” and help your community remain a desirable place to live, work and play by participating in your local recycling program – or finding out how to start one.
