Top 10 Ways to Reuse Your Stuff this Earth Day

Hiya, this is Amy from Maker Mama. Earth Day is here, and today I’m sharing my favorite ideas for reducing waste and getting your make on. Here are my Top 10 Ways to to Reuse Your Stuff this Earth Day:

Manipulate a cardboard box into a unique wall lamp with this fun video tutorial.

Use the rest of your box for some upcycled wall clocks by Pysselbolaget.

Save old duct tape rolls to make embroidered bangles.

  Turn your brown bag stash into a set of notebooks in just five minutes.

Plastic liter bottles make for super cute kitty planters.

 Dress up large tin cans and boxes in to upcycled utensil holders for the kitchen (or your desk).

Give those holey jeans new life as a knitted throw pillow.

Ditch the plastic and make your own produce bags using colorful T-shirts instead.

Or make a crocheted T-shirt rug.

And my favorite creative reuse idea? Turn any plastic bags you do have into plarn–perfect for any knit, crochet, or weaving project you can dream up!

Thanks for having me Mary, and I hope you’re all inspired to get creative this Earth Day!
