Craftsters Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle!

It might sounds cheesy but I really think a lot of Craftsters treat every day like Earth Day. So many of us are trying our best to reduce, reuse, recycle, and just be good stewards of the Earth to the best of our abilities whenever possible. There are TONS of crafts being posted every day that exemplify the small changes you can make to your routine that can help the earth and show off your crafty side!

Lindsey goes to eleven crocheted this bag from yarn made from of old plastic bags.

Crafting something that’s reusable instead of using a one-use item is a great way to reduce trash. Kochopia made her morning coffee a little more personal and eco-friendly by crocheting her own coffee cozy instead of getting a new sleeve every day.
Reusing items that would otherwise be garbage not only gives you a bigger craft stash, it also keeps those items out of landfills for a little while longer. jillybeans used greeting cards she received to make new cards.
Growing your own food saves the gas it would take to bring that item to you and can reduce pesticide use if you grow organic. It can also be fun and rewarding to eat something that you’ve grown! AeonGoddess made her own “Earth Box” gardening container to grow veggies in her small space.
Using a bike instead of a car for short trips is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. -zoma- ditched her car for a bike, and then created this great bag for her bike basket to keep her groceries safe a dry, regardless of the weather.

I really could go on and on! Take a look at any of Reconstructed boards or browse the tag cloud for enough inspiration to help you make every day Earth Day!
