As some cities watch their garbage pile up in the streets, at least one person is finding new uses for trash.
Jordan's Alaa Ziadeh is building some of the most beautiful things using his garbage from around the city. Ziadeh first started by selling "upcycled" objects at a bookstand, which ultimately turned into a brand, Ziadat For Recycling .
He began buying material from scrap shops when garbage was no longer sufficient.
Here are some of the most beautiful objects he's created:
Just look at this table
And this beautifully simple picture hanger...
And this fold-able desk...
And this personalized box...
And this awesome bench
And making use of belts... for bookshelves!
