Inner Tube Recycling

Ever felt a pang of guilt when you've discarded a perfectly decent inner tube after a puncture rather than patch it up for later use?
Heard of any councils offering a rubber re-cycling service? Thought not. 
But all may not be lost. 
Today I visited a 'marché nocturne' at Meyssac in the Lot region of France, and spotted a table of bags, rucksacks and other items made from recycled inner tubes. 
BackToBag offer 'Original bags made from inner cycle tubes - strong, waterproof 100% recycled product'.

They're made by Annemieke Bod, Dutch born but a French resident and they're sold on her website www.backtobag.net (which may be under repair at the moment - watch this space).
