Repurposing and Upcycling can save you money and we all know the joy it brings.
I have loved creating stuff out of waste from early on in life. I used to think of ways to put old, abandoned stuff to use.
When we reuse things, we help a wee bit by not having the stuff dumped into the landfill.
This Native American Proverb “We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children,” sums our environment threatening lifestyle and how we must not take our planet for granted.
Using old clothes: Old clothes can be reused/repurposed or upcycled in multiple ways. I often keep old bed sheets, curtains, etc. to be turned into cloth bags. For past 3 years, on my son’s birthday I get these cloth bags made locally and give return gifts in them.
