Recycling has been used in art since the early part of the 20th century, when Cubist Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973) and Georges Braque (1882 -1963) created collages from news prints, packaging and other materials. The ''outside Art'' movement is recognized as a genuine expressive art form, and is celebrated because of the materials used and not in spite of them. The same principle can be used inside the homes, where objects are now displayed with pride.
There is a huge demand in western countries to decorate homes in a ''green'' style. A lot of effort is put into recycled product design and the creation of a natural look. This ideal is also an integral part of developing countries, although their use of recycled and natural products is often based on necessity and wishing to get maximum use out of materials.
