Combining recycling and creativity through DIY projects has become easier than ever. There are plenty of sources on the internet you can use to find inspiration and start your new recycling/DIY project today.
Sure, there are always ways to use old stuff that we would usually throw away for making new and exciting things, but having a seemingly infinite source of inspiration and tutorials makes this quest a lot easier.

Old textiles

Old clothes are making up a great part of our yearly waste. Although there are various ways communities collect old clothes either for donating or recycling purposes, there’s still a big percentage that just goes to waste.

Textiles like cotton and wool are unbelievably versatile and it’s a real shame when something made out of these materials is just thrown away. To make one thing clear here, before you consider recycling your old clothes into something new, make sure that you take a look at the option of donating them first. It doesn’t matter if the old sweater you have is not the latest fashion. Many people are in need of clothes, so consider this first.
