What do You Need to Reuse or Upcycle?

What do you need to reuse?If you’re a regular visitor here, chances are you’ve checked out our resource page with ideas on how to reuse certain items that would otherwise be headed to the recycle bin or the landfill. We started that resources page to help you guys quickly find what you need, but I have to confess that I have done a terrible job maintaining it. I’m planning to go through and see what seems to be missing, but I’d also like to know what you would like to see on that page!

  • Is there something that you’ve been hanging on to but aren’t sure how to reuse?
  • Maybe there’s something you see getting wasted at home or in the office that you just know you could craftily repurpose if you just had a few ideas to get you started!
  • Has someone asked you how to reuse something, and you were stumped?

We want to hear from you guys! If you have a few minutes, check out our How do I reuse…? page, and drop a comment here letting us know what you’d like us to add. If we have an article about how to reuse your item, I’ll get it added immediately. If not, I’ll send your request to our awesome writers, and we’ll do our best come up with something for you!
