freitag bagsYou may remember last year I posted about Freitag ® bags a company in Switzerland that makes messenger bags, ipod sleves, wallets, and more out of recycled stuff freitag bags store in zurich from the front (vinyl truck tarps, seatbelts, and bicycle inner-tubes).

They recently opened a new store in Zurich that's made from recycled freight containers.

The FREITAG SHOP ZURICH is completely built from rusty, recycled freight-containers. Lovingly they were gutted, reinforced, piled up and secured. Zurich?s first bonsai-skyscraper: Low enough not to violate the city?s restriction on high-rise buildings. High enough to send shivers down anyone?s spine.

Thanks to John Benson for emailing me a link.

I found some old bags. They proved to me that youth is wasted on the young. People under 30 ought to be forced to give up their youth until they get older. We old farts ought to be given their youth to use properly until they mature. Ain't that a grand idea? Bush eats the biggie.
