Twice Used: Broken iPhones Upcycled into Everyday Items

twiceuse

“Twice Used is actual iPhone glass upcycled into modern household goods. We take what you’ve loved and lost and make it useful again.” via venturebeat.com:

Twice Used is a project set to serve dual purposes: Eliminate hazardous electronic waste by manufacturing modern household goods by hand in the USA. We have designed and prototyped a handful of attractive products that all have one thing in common: They are all made from used iPhone glass and other parts such as home buttons. All of this glass comes from iPhones that were in the clumsy hands of individuals all over the world. The phones were dropped, brought into a repair shop to be fixed, and then the glass was sold to us to make this artwork.

Our background is the iPhone repair and LCD recycling industry. We have been repairing phones for over 3 years and recycling phone screens for the last year. Screens that are too broken to be recycled must be thrown away – that’s where we come in. We’d prefer to not crowd our landfills with hazardous waste, so we make stuff out of it by hand, in the USA.
