BRIGHTON, ENGLAND –  Recycling is all the rage nowadays.

You can even recycle those old tights you can’t wear anymore.

But an English lass has taken recycling to a whole ‘nuther level by making a picture frame out of human placenta.

Yeah the organ connecting the developing fetus to the uterus wall that allows nutrients to get to the unborn baby.

Well, this grad student from the University of Brighton got the bright idea to make a picture frame by boiling, cooking and grinding placenta into small pieces before molding it with resin and other materials.

The result is a nifty frame you can keep or give as a gift to the grandparents.

But recycled placenta products have been around for a while. Like facial soap and shampoo.

There’s even supposed to be a placenta jelly drink, which, of course, is not to be confused with Soylent Green.
