Create Created...

Thank you to all of the companies who have upcycled their billbaords and saved
them from going to landfill.

As you can see below, these billboards have recreated themselves (with the help of
WAS) into a range of pretty cool looking products.  If your company's billboards have
finished their campaign and are crying out to continue their mission of marketing
your brand
please contact us for some ideas.



These round Ottomans were made for BurgerFuel as unique seating for some of their
outdoor eating areas. Keep an eye out as you might see them at your local BurgerFuel.

DB Export

DB Export wanted these large bean bags for the Round the Bays run. They will also be 
used for other corporate events.


DB Breweries have added these large bean bags to their existing WAS Bean Bag
collection to be used at company and corporate functions.


Waikato Museum

These Ottomans were made for Waikato Museum's eco-exhibition 'Planet Warriors'.  In 
this exhibition children took up the challenge of becoming one of the planets newest
warriors and visitors explored the way in which activities in daily life affect the planet.
Small changes can have a big impact on the health of our planet.


Skills Organisation

Here is what the Skills Organisation had to say about the product and service they

"We've recently been through a rebranding exercise, followed by a period of major
growth as we acquired other organisations.  There was a huge amount of history tied
up with our previous name and when we discovered an old billboard we thought what
better way to preserve that history than through creating a WAS bag or two.  We had
20 gorgeous mini-satchels made and they've made wonderful gifts.  The quality of the
finished product and the service from Carolyn and the team has been outstanding.  
Thank you."  
Katherine Hall (Head of Marketing)


University of Auckland

What a great way to upcycle your billboards. These Laptop bags were created for the
University of Auckland to use as student prizes and gifts.


Environment Canterbury

Environment Canterbury are using these Ottomans as very unique seating. They looked



Powershop commissioned us to convert these fantastic billboards into tote bags to give
away at one of their conferences.


Meridian Energy

Meridian Energy supplied WAS with a range of banners and billboards which we
converted into laptop and tote bags.
Fantastic working with you Lizzy. 

"Sustainability is in our DNA at Meridian - that means we are always looking at ways
to 'up-cycle' our old materials.  WAS not only found creative ways to turn our trash to
treasure but were great to deal with".
 Lizzy Baker (Brand Manager)


LeasePlan is the world's leading fleet and vehicle leasing management company.  
LeasePlan New Zealand manages more than 17,000 vehicles for a broad range of
organisations and sectors both locally and internationally.

"As a great way to repurpose billboards and keep LeasePlan perfectly on-brand, the
WAS laptop satchels we chose were the ideal way to showcase a celebratory 20 year
anniversary for the company.  
We were impressed with the quality of the end product
and the creative way WAS selected
the graphics to make the most of the bag design for real impact. Add to that a helpful
WASteam, we have a happy client and some very lucky satchel recipients".  
(Creative Director LY Design)

Grab A Seat

“After our highly successful and visible billboard campaigns we had quite a few tonnes
of skins left over.  The team at WAS bags were great with helping us decide what we
wanted to turn these into. We decided on an order of ottomans, satchels and laptop
bags. As each piece was unique we had no idea what to expect but the end result was
incredible.  The way the billboard images were used within the structure of the bags/
ottomans was great and stayed true to our brand. Check out the photos because they
truly do speak for themselves.”
