4 Awesome Recycling Projects To Try At Home

Posted on

You don’t have to forsake all material possessions and chain yourself to a tree to be an eco-warrior. It’s the little things you do in your everyday life that can make a big difference. Recycling, for instance, is a great way to reduce pollution and waste, and help keep our planet green and clean. Although many may think recycling stops at taking your plastic and paper to your local recycling centre, it isn’t the only way to be eco-savvy.
You can also recycle by finding new purposes for your waste. Making crafts, décor or jewellery out of your non-perishables, for example, can be a way to save money, help the planet, and have fun at the same time! But getting your creative ‘thinking cap’ on isn’t always easy. That’s why we thought we’d give you a little inspiration by sharing a few fun-tastic recycling projects.
