Crafting with recyclables is hip, and it allows you to freely experiment, which usually leads better results.

Plus, some of the things we’re going to show you are best made with recycled materials rather than with new material, as they just would not have the same ‘look’ nor carry the same ‘warm n fuzzy feeling’ that one gets from making something beautiful and doing something for the environment at the same time.

Try each craft for yourself so you can create a beautiful Earth Day, every day.
