Choose to Reuse
Most of us would agree that using what you’ve got makes better sense than going out and buying something else. It makes sense both financially and environmentally.
Here are some examples of creating something new with repurposed materials:
I like this raised garden bed in my neighborhood made from old closet doors.
Another creative neighbor has a garden “bed” with a brass headboar.
We made this chicken coop from used materials obtained via Freecycle and Craigslist.
More information about building a chicken coop here, and additional views of the chicken coop here.
Crochet Shopping Bag made out of yarn leftover from another project.
Reusable Coffee Sleeve made from leftover yarn.
Here’s a link to the “Choose to Reuse” graphic above that you can download.
