TEMPE, AZ - A Tempe program is taking Arizona State University banners and turning them into fashion.
That's right — those banners seen hanging around campus will be cut up and sewn into one-of-a-kind tote bags, thanks to the Center for Habilitation.
Instead of sitting in landfills for hundreds of years, the banners are being recycled into something stylish. "It's something you don't even think about," said Ryan McAlister, a spokesperson for the Center. "I'm sure everybody sees them and nobody really thinks about what's really going to happen with them."
Just to give you an idea, one banner can produce a couple dozen bags.
