Most likely you have heard the old adage: your trash is someone else’s treasure. If you think about it, almost everything has the potential for reuse.
Have you heard of upcycling – it is the process of taking something old, discarded, or disposable and repurposing it in a way that makes it valuable, useful, or simply atheistically pleasing.
We live in a culture where it is too easy to just throw something away and to buy something “new”. Taking a discarded item and giving it new life will not only make you feel good but will help our Earth too.
Some great ways to get started I love to upcycle my old linens and clothing into toys for my son, throw pillows, linen napkins, and pet toys.
How do you upcycle? I would love to hear more.
