1. Hi Tek Mosaic necklace
John and Corliss Rose sit in their California studio and make beautiful objects out of electronic parts that would otherwise be thrown away. If you could wear your computer as jewelry, it might look like this. $1,850, 2roses.com

3. River-rescued Table
Peter Kent in Arcadia designs tables made from 100-year-old-plus pecky cypress (below) and hackberry wood salvaged from the bottom of the Suwannee River. Call this recycling of an ancient and resilient resource. $2,300, polkartstudio.com

4. Fling Containers
Make recycling the life of the party. Flings are portable, pop-up containers designed to help keep recycling and trash separate at special occasions like birthdays or tailgate parties.

5. Strida 5.0 bike
