Repurposing with Style

As permaculture people & green-spirited folk of all stripes are well aware, sometimes an old “trash” item serves better than the original — while also boosting the STYLE quotient of daily life! Here, wine corks replace fallen-out handlebar-stoppers, with the added benefit of making a superior “padding” (buffer between metal handlebars and shop windows etc — for those times you park your bike by leaning it against a shop) . Got any favorite stylish repurposing tips/stories of your own?
