If you are like me and like to save water…
Saving water, being lazy, out of time, I can see me using this. Where the hell would I find arrowroot powder?
Cant wait to look for a couple of old tv’s to hollow out!!
Any idea what I should do with the guts? Electronic recycling in Houston? Selling the parts?
I want I want I want I want!!!!
Earth911 is a blog full of awesome, creative upcycling ideas like this, check ‘em out!
I want this so much.
Really cool site where they show art made from recycled materials.
My friend and I were considering making a quilt of clothes that are so far gone they can’t be salvaged. A nice, creative project, and we aren’t wasting anything!
When we finish (it may be a loooong while) We’ll post pics and let you know how it turned out and how easy (or difficult) it was.
“The Scrap Box is the place for creative recycling.
You will find a large assortment of unique materials
which manufacturers and businesses
would otherwise send to landfills:
remnants, samples, seconds, and scraps.
This good “junk” can be recycled into useful materials for
art classes, learning games, science experiments, crafts
and other expressions of creativity.
The Scrap Box is open to the public.”
“CDs and DVDs have a myriad of uses. Because they pick up light so well, they can be used as reflectors on bicycle wheels and driveway entrances. Attach some felt to one side with spray adhesive and they become coasters. Dip them into cooled bacon grease and pat with birdseed, then hang outside for a great treat for the birds.”
Don’t throw out your old CDs just yet! They can be used for a million more things too, just look around, do some googling!
The Volksware designers have provided an interesting alternative way of recycling clothes that may not even bit fit for the Salvation Army. By stitching them and rolling them they have created a simple carpet system that can be cut to length and fit to a space. This kind of recycled furniture design is something to think about the next time someone tells you to pick your clothes up off the floor!
With a little brother we have plenty of old, torn, too-small clothes bundled in trash bags. If you’re the same maybe this is the way to go! And who said you had to keep the rug? Give it away, sell it if you can!
