Emirates has given old billboards a new lease of life to celebrate World Environment Day.

The Dubai-based airline has recycled old advertising materials of theirs in South Africa into 200 reusable school and 125 shopping bags.

A local entrepreneur in Johannesburg was commissioned to design and create them.

The bags are set to be donated to primary school students in Alexandra.
