Cardboard, paper and plastic are filling up our landfills, but these can all be recycled easily and cheaply. Graypants recycles cardboard by making lanterns and lampshades from cardboard scraps, if I hadn’t been told these were made with scraps, I would have thought they were specially made cardboard shades! That’s how good they look.
And they make pretty shadows on the walls when the lights come on. There are quite a few different designs of recycled cardboard lanterns, and you can see them all on the Graypants website.
