Recycling has reached a whole new level after fashion designer, dancer and photographer Bhungane Mehlomakhulu created a complete outfit, as well as a matching mask, out of his reusable Woolworths shopping bags.

The designer took to social media to wow his followers with a series of pictures that see him wearing a black outfit he created himself from his shopping bags.

“Recycled a few of the Woolworths South Africa bags and constructed a full look,” said Bhungane in a tweet.

The Woolies shopping bags outfit consists of a short-sleeved collared golf shirt, with a short white-zip detail that matches the Woolies logo, which can be seen on the right shoulder of the shirt.

He paired it with matching shorts that have the Woolies logo placed horizontally on the left side of the shorts.

Bhungane completed his two-piece outfit with a face mask that has the Woolies logo directly in the middle and has accessorised his look with an original Woolies shopping bag.

The innovative look grabbed the attention of over 17,400 Twitter users and received recognition and “a dub” from the Woolworths South Africa team.

Soon after Mehlomakhulu shared his outfit on social media, he urged people to always execute whatever vision they have no matter how small it is, because they will definitely reap the benefits.

“Guys please always execute your vision no matter how small you think it may be, even if it’s made out of grocery bags. It’s about the work and effort you put in and in time, you’ll reap the benefits,” said the dancer.
