Waste Not: Scrap Tyres [Infographic]

Scrap tyres are, sadly, a serious hindrance to the welfare of our environment and to our health. It has become a far too common sight to witness towering piles of flaming, disused tyres that are a complete eyesore and emanate a horrendous odour. What makes this dumping of old tyres even more galling is that they can very easily be repurposed into items of practical value around your home, such as flowerbeds, swings and dog beds.

Upcycled Valentine’s Cards

I have been in a penpal group already for almost two years and this has been a great opportunity for me to put my upcycling into action (and use up all the material I’ve been not throwing away from the times before we adopted a zero waste lifestyle, or at least we have tried to). So, in this post I’ll show you the cards I made for my snail mail, as simple as they may look, they were all made with ecogreenlove. Also, I have included some cute Etsy ideas at the end.

💚 If you’re into this, take a look to DIY: Upcycled Valentine’s Day gifts ideas or the video tutorials.

DIY: Recycled Christmas Cards

Hi everybody! Thank you for passing by 🙂

This week I’ve been in a crafty mood. I made my own recycled paper (more like cardboard 😂) to send some Christmas handmade cards for my penpals and friends reusing scraps from materials I had (below each photo I leave you the link to where I got the idea from with the tutorial). I’m not the great crafter, but I like how rustic these cards look thanks to the materials I used (and my clumsiness 😛 ). Also, they are easy and may be a fun activity to make with kids.

Hope you get inspired!
