The Nano as a cassette tape

Recycling takes another twist.

45 iPod Cases

What do you do with a bunch of old cassette tapes when you can't bear to throw them out? Make iPod cases out of them, of course.

The green people at 45 iPod Cases, which originally made a name for themselves by recycling old 45 records for the media player, is trying to do the same with cassettes for the Nano. We don't think they're as aesthetically successful as the vinyl retro look, but they do deserve some points for ecology's sake.
