Continuing on the theme of fun repurposed stuff is Againnyc, a NYC-based (duh!) online store that sells sweet handbags, yoga bags, and even a funky laptop bag, all made of vintage fabrics and hardware. They even donate a portion of their profits to environmental groups.

It’s so great that designers and ecoistas are embracing all the parts of the mantra, reduce, reuse, recycle.
