Reducing, reusing and recycling links round-up

It’s been a while since I did a round-up of some of my favourite reducing, reusing and recycling links so without further ado…

Have you spotted any great reducing, reusing or recycling how-tos recently?

  1. Thanks for mentioning my Jewellery workshop, it is fully booked now.

    My interesting recycling and re-using project for 2011 is major! I am about to have an extension and new kitchen put in. I am going to distribute the kitchen and the utility room cabinets and doors and tiles and wiring to my network of artists to crete an exhibition that I am co-ordinating with Wirral Council. The show will be in the Pacific Road Arts Centre in Birkenhead in March (Merseyside, North West of England) and will then tour to Birkenhead Park in May. Any Merseyside artists feel free to get in touch if you would like to be involved….I have many artists onboard including another favourite of here Ann Ellis, also hoping mosaic artist Debbie Ryan will be involved. There is a stash of stuff building up including broken plates, iron, telephone, motherboard, etc…it has given me a chance to go through my stash of recyclables and say “you have sat here for 6 months and I have not got around to it yet, time to move on” without feeling guilty. I am also involved in another recycling project, this time a fashio show at the Williamson Art Gallery also in Birkenhead and there will be classes in advance to give advice on upcycling jewellery and clothes… so I see a GREEN future locally.

    I love the idea of buying less clothes.
    I had a similar idea in 2009, so between January and (US) thanksgiving, I spent 70 euros in total in clothing (stuff I needed – a new rain proof jacket, underwear etc). I used the savings of not buying clothes for a holiday.

    Hi y’all, love that loo tube scrollwork, fab idea. Continued thanks for this site Louisa. Hi Alison, good luck with it all!

  5. The exhibition went well and we are heading towards the second outing of the de-junk, re-junk show 16th -31st of July and can accomodate more artists, if anyone wants to get involved from Merseyside (North West of England)
