Seattle’s Upcycled Goods Turns Old Treadmill Belts Into iPad Sleeves

Used treadmill belts are the latest material to get the iPad green accessory treatment by Seattle’s bag manufacturer, Upcycled Goods. The product is handmade, and if you are already turning to tech products like  Fitbit for your daily exercise, you might as well be recycling your old treadmill belt into these awesome rubber sleeves. Here is a great video of Upcycled Good’s hand production process where they use USA-made felt liners to create a soft surface for your iPad.

These durable, handmade sleeves are pretty affordable at $35. There’s no online shop for now, so you’ll have to contact them personally about these gems. For now, their Facebook page is a great way to keep up with the latest goods.
