Milkmuny Recycled Wallet

Hoping to do something about the less than 0.05% of milk and juice cartons in the US that ever end up recycled, Portland industrial designer John Schreiber created Milkmuny, producing highly-functional wallets from the familiar paper cartons we regularly discard. Milkmuny pays local groups seeking to raise funds for the cartons they collect, and after washing them, create wonderful multi-pocketed wallets through an intricate folding process—$10 each, with a 45 day warranty and a percentage of sales donated to environmental groups. Schreiber explains that

“I wanted to challenge traditional design thinking and create a mass produced product that didn’t expend more energy to create or require more resources to produce but was also aesthetically pleasing and uncompromisingly functional.”
