Thank you for all the lovely comments both here and on my FB page. It is good to hear from so many people who want to ditch plastic and other single use items. So in the spirit of reusing before recycling I have a challenge for you this week. A repurpose challenge.
This morning I lost an old stained bamboo tee-shirt and acquired some dusters. Very easy. I cut up the tee-shirt and have a nice new set of lovely soft bamboo dusters. The tee shirt wasn’t fit for charity but it wasn’t yet ready for composting. Win win.
So my challenge for you this week, and I’ll try to do it too and let you know how I get on:
Monday: Repurpose something you used to wear. It could be clothing, jewellery, a scarf or a hair accessory, anything you used to wear.
Tuesday: Repurpose something you made. It could be last night’s leftovers or a three piece suit! Please do not repurpose your children however irritating they are!
Wednesday: Repurpose something you have put out for recycling. A plastic bottle, a jar, some envelopes. Get creative in your recycling bin.
Thursday: Repurpose something from your black hole. We all have them, the place where we put things we don’t know what to do with but can’t quite bring ourselves to get rid of. Some are as big as a garage or outbuilding. Some are as small as a kitchen drawer. You know yours, now go release something from it.
Friday: Repurpose something that is broken. If you can’t repair it can you turn it into something else
You get the weekend off!
