Getting into a DIY or Arts and Crafts projects can sometimes cost you a lot of money, considering all the materials you’re using plus the time you’re investing. But of course you can always opt to go green with your projects and make use of the materials that you can find to reuse, recycle or upcycle.
This will not only save you money and challenge your creativity but will also help the environment tremendously. Every time you make use of something once regarded as trash with your DIY or Arts and Crafts projects, you’re saving landfill spaces that are continuously growing as time passes by.
Trash pollution is no doubt a worldwide problem. The ever increasing population, lack of awareness and lack of concern to the environment undeniably brings this planet in peril. But then again it’s not too late yet, we can still do something to save this blue earth. The best time is now, right? Today, this very minute!
Challenge your creativity and give purpose to something that we would ordinarily label as garbage – a plastic bottle, an empty cereal box, an old furniture, a glass container or a worn out shoe.
Making use of these materials, especially the forever trash plastics will immensely affect the state of our environment and other living things. Plastic trash will remain with us forever; we might as well find ways to reuse or repurpose to integrate it back into our lives with a clear purpose and positive meaning.
More and more artists are embracing the eco activist in them by creating art from trash to make a statement. You, too, can do your part and apply recycling, upcycling or repurposing every time you have a DIY or Arts and Crafts project in mind.
Keen to be Green
There are so many ways we can go green with our lifestyle, perhaps not everybody are aware that it’s possible for us to still live comfortably while keeping it green. Often times, when people hear the word green living they immediately thought of the comfort they’ll have to give up in order to go Green.
It does take a certain level of awareness and mindset to fully embrace the green lifestyle, considering all the distraction revolving around us. But will that be enough for an excuse? Remember that we can always start small, start on the little things. ..Before you knew it you’re going to get sucked into the green vortex of lifestyle and you’ll be proud of the things you’re doing (or not doing) to save our environment, our planet.
