I am sure that many girls (like me) love buying shoes: flats, heels, boots. We will never stop buying, and there is always no ‘ENOUGH’ comes to our mind. So here’s the question, what do you do with those shoe boxes?
Throwing away? Since there is limited stroage space at home?
Or just asking for no box when you buy the shoes (anyway, I will not do that..)
SincerelyShans has posted a pretty cool video on YouTube and sharing her way of upcycling the shoe boxes.
Finally, we can ‘get rid of’ these shoe boxes.. in a more fun way:)
Let us see your creative work green artists, and I’m sure it will be amazing!
It is no way that I keep repeating how bad the situation we are in Australia regarding the pollution problem.
What I want to addrees here is more about ‘lovely‘, ‘fantastic‘, ‘awesome‘ and ‘wonderful‘.
Let’s see what Sarah’s sustainable tips of the week are:
It is not asking you to be a superhero and save the world for the rest of us. It is just saying that a little help will actually do a lot if you keep the habit. You will never know how powerful you can be until you really try. I believe, if there are more ‘a little spakle in life’, the environment will be brighter:) So, guys, start from today, start from YOU.
Join us and be a green artists like many others do!!!
RecycledmMaterials make fabulous art supplies! And, once you get in to the Recycling habit, you will be surprised how easy it is!
Some of the following designs serve multiple purposes: illustrating the material possibilities of what most would consider trash while also maximizing the aesthetic potential of what would otherwise be considered waste objects. Clothes become rugs, airline trolleys become furniture, cardboard becomes bridges and sewage turns into building blocks!
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.
Ever wonder what happens to those oddly shaped airplane trolleys when the airlines are done using them? Well, so did Bordbar before they began appropriating and adding splashes of design to them and reselling them to the public as useful (if odd) multipurpose mobile furniture. These are highly customizable have have a surprising range of possible functions once they are recycled into use – including doubling as recycled bookcases and bookshelves.
The Remarkable product design team has created a series of colorful and useful versions of traditional products made out of unusual recycled materials.
The Remida Center appropriates scrap materials from all kinds of local businesses in order to gain raw materials ranging from wood and metal to plexiglass and plastic that students can use in art projects. The idea is both to facilitate art but also to raise awareness about the origins of materials, essentially recycling otherwise unused materials and putting them toward the production of art.
Italian designer Marcella Foschi has developed a quite clever way to recycle cassette tapes: a product material that exists in abundance but is associated with a dying (or dead) technology. Her coin purses are at least cute (if not collectible) and appropriate a material we all know, love and have stopped using.
Thinking of a little suprise for a friend? This is something that you may love to do.
Upcycling is becoming increasingly popular among groups and individuals concerned about pollution problem. Recycling is great but it requires energy and resources to collect, sort and process unwanted items and waste. SO upcycling is an even greener way of recycling . You find a new purpose for your unwanted items before you throw them away. It’s all about taking disposable things and creating something useful from them. Using a little creativity, and make something lovely and special for your loved ones will be great.
