5. Egg Carton Recycling Bin by Live Love Laugh
I think this is the most creative recycling bin that I’ve ever seen! If you can’t tell from the picture above, Live Love Laugh glued four large egg cartons together to make a unique recycling bin. You can’t put any liquids in it, of course, but it would be perfect for paper in a craft studio. What would you put in this awesome recycling bin?
Be sure to visit each of these sites and leave them a sweet comment of encouragement! If you have your own green craft projects, please submit them into next month’s Green Crafts Showcase! I would love to see (and feature) your projects!

It’s cute, but how is it green? It uses a brand new tank top, fabric glue (read plastic) and fusible webbing (contains plastic, packaged in plastic). To me, green crafts should not be those that contribute to landfills but that keep things like plastic and other waste OUT of them.
Thanks for your comment! I assume you mean the skirt? It doesn’t say in her tutorial that you use a new tank top, and you could certainly use one that’s in your closet or from the thrift store. She also makes the embellishments from scraps. I agree that fabric glue is not the greenest material, but we believe in embracing all types of reuse. If you are upcycling a tank top with fabric scraps, a little glue is a drop in the bucket, isn’t it? If you prefer, you can always sew the appliques on instead of gluing.
I encourage you to enter your own green crafts projects in this month’s showcase. It sounds like you have some waste-free projects you could share!
