Belt up

What to do with British fire brigade hoses when their inferno-fighting and life-saving days are over?

Belt up

Dispatching them to landfill is clearly an ignoble act. Step forward the team from Elvis & Kresse, who recognised the green eco-potential behind the textile, converting it into a range of lifestyle accessories. The Vegetarian Living boys rather like this fetching belt, finished with a one-prong buckle made from 100 per cent recycled pewter. We would say it was 'smoking', but thankfully all the soot has been carefully scrubbed off... Available in six sizes for £36.50, from www.ethicalsuperstore.com.
