recycle and reuse… is “eco-friendly” the future?

I’ve been spending a good deal of time thinking about this very question. I love my new, man made, designer crap just as much as the next person, but I’ve been looking into more of the recycled fashion stuff – be it designer tables from ancient hardwoods salvaged from a hungarian church or shoes made from old car-seat leather.

People are talking more and more about our resources being depleted and running out of materials.  Hawking is still preaching that we’ll have to colonize another plant to survive.  It’s interesting to see what some designers and environment-concious companies are doing with recycled materials.  Check out Terra Plana for some interesting shoe designs (and see what the folks at inhabitat have to say).
