What can I do with my old cassettes?
Posted on Thursday, Jan. 12, 2012
Have old cassettes in your drawers? There are many great ways to go about reusing them.
With a little work, cassettes can turn into useful coin purses, wallets, stack of boxes, belts, dresses, and more. To make a wallet or coin purse, all it takes is three steps. First, you need to pull apart the cassette, then add an interior lining, and finally sew on a zipper. Within minutes, you can have a trendy little bag. You can even use them to store your USB drives, Access cards, and other items so they don’t get lost in your bag.
In Japan, people have even turned cassettes into mini transformer dinosaurs.
If you need to recycle them, there are many places close to campus that will accept them. EarthCare Recylcing and Savers in San Jose (approximately 2 miles away) both except these items. To find there locations, click on this link.
