Clever Recycling

To recycle is to convert waste into reusable materials, to make a new item out of used stuff. To upcycle, is to create a cool high quality product out of discarded or old objects. Recycling and upcycling extends the lifespan of things and prevents more garbage from going to the landfills.

For instance, if your puppy chewed up your book, don’t just put the ruined book in the recycle bin. Think out of the box! Wrap a present with it! Instead of purchasing wrapping paper, you can also use old magazines or newspaper.

Get clever and creative and make useful things out of disposable and old items!
