Everything Is Rubbish + Weekend Links

Everything Is Rubbish is a response to consumerism, our waste and its ability to become a bi-product. The trio behind the project trawled the UK coastline for plastic waste, sorted through and manufactured a consumer product. The result is an instantly recognisable consumer product, created from our own consumption. This video shows how the trainers was made.

It's been another busy week for us, 90% wedding related to 10% birthday celebrations; definitely need a bit of downtime this weekend! If you folks feel Buckets & Spades is your favourite Men's Fashion Blog then it would be amazing if you could nominate us at the 2014 Bloglovin' Awards.....will send cake! Have a wonderful weekend!
