Who knew you could save the world at the same time you save money? If you need a case for your iPhone, iPod or point-and-shoot camera, try making one from juice box packaging. It's sturdy, waterproof and it helps to reuse the hard-to-recycle wax-coated drink box.

Juice boxes are great. Whether you're 9 years old or 99 years old, you can appreciate the convenience of a single-serving, portably-packed drink of fruit juice. But the boxes those drinks come in? Not so great. Those wax-coated cardboard boxes aren't so green, and they're really energy intensive to recycle.

Instead, take matters into your own hands and DIY this re-use project. With a little ingenuity (and a little thread), you can create a case for your cell phone or point-and-shoot digital camera.

Randomly Ross showcases in a photo set on Flickr the process he uses to transform cool foreign juice boxes into sleeves for his gear. While there isn't extensive instructions, you can totally see how it's done photo set on Flickr">through his photos.

And if you're not interested in DIY? No problem. Randomly Ross sells his recycled juice box wares at Artboxe.com.
