DIY Color Your Own Eco-Friendly Cardboard Speakers


It takes surprisingly little to house a functional speaker – make-it-yourself fold-out cardboard box set really is enough to do the trick. On top of being highly portable and sustainable, the blank brown slates of the sides of these boxes provide creative color-your-own surfaces.


These do-it-yourself Eco Nation speakers by Merkury are perfect for any eco-and-audiophile, made from mostly recycled materials and accompanied by a simple set of coloring pencils. You can sit down, draft an idea design the finished product yourself or simply sketch on each side when the mood (music) strikes you. Of course, the entire idea would be a whole lot greener if the outter packaging were designed to double as a portable boombox.
