“For all the old items, which are no longer in use, throwing away is never a wise way. There are lots of ideas for reusing old belts into useful, stylish, handmade goods or interesting home decorations, rather than throwing them away.”
The #Recycling Association named Pringles tubes and Lucozade Sport bottles in a list of products that pose the biggest challenges for #reuse. The greater the number of materials used in #packaging, the harder it is for recycling machines to separate them. Head to read the article: http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-39953209
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.
You’ve heard of people recycling everything from cardboard boxes to old papers and clothes. Recycling is an important process to be discussed if we are serious about making our planet green and pollution free.
This infographic revolves around some of the creative tips you can follow to reduce the amount of stuff you throw away. Start reusing and recycling everything in life and reduce your carbon footprints.
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.
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.
