Totally Geeky or Geek Chic? Repackaged Laptop Case

The last eco laptop bag I ran across certainly had solid commercial aspirations and great form, but Eoin McNally's Packaging for Re-use project offers a more humble approach to protecting your laptop the earth-friendly way. The idea is people should recycle the cardboard that their laptops arrive in by reshaping them it into a protective carrying sleeve. The cardboard casing your computer ships in is treated with natural wax to protect it from spills and as an alternative to the usual polystyrene foam peanuts.

No complaints against being eco-friendly, we're all striving for that with the 'going green' and what-not. That said, it's a complete travesty. Tasteless colour and I don't care for the ribbing. Ick.

Humm, makes me think back to when we made bookcovers with brown paper grocery bags, and then would draw all over them. Kevin

This sounds like a great idea, but it doesn't look like it would protect the computer.

I'd say I would give it a shot, but I am not very crafty, so I am not sure how it would turn out! Could be a total disaster.
