Clever ReUse: ReMakes Placemats

Posted by Lyndsy Czapla:

Do you ever wonder what happens to billboards once they are taken down? I was quite curious to see if any companies were doing anything with them after seeing different billboards along the freeway constantly being torn down and replaced with new ones. It is frustrating knowing that many are probably just discarded into our landfills and not being used ever again. However, I did a little searching on the Internet and I came across the company, ReMakes, that is ReUsing billboards and turning them into cool placemats. According to their website, ReMakes™ eco-friendly placemats are made from reclaimed billboards and movie posters. Each one-of-a-kind set of four placemats is randomly cut and selected from the same poster. Who wouldn’t love to have some clever and unique placemats to spice up their table? Since placemats are the easiest way to change your table up and don’t cost much at all, I say check these out! They also have a neat video about their story:
