Instead of being buried in landfills, used plastic containers, industrial leftovers, and toothpaste tubes are finding new lives as jewelry, shoes, wallets, and even evening bags. The fad known as “trashion” has gone mainstream as urban designers are increasingly using excess and discarded materials. These aren’t products that look like they came from arts & crafts time at summer camp, but sophisticated earth-friendly designs that could hang with the best of the designer labels.

BeGoodDesigns Leather Shoes ($76 to $96): Made from leftover leather and denim used by the auto and fashion industry, these shoes are so adorable you’ll need more than one pair.
