83 Inventive Ways to Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle

by Dinah Wulf

I have been blogging for over four months now.  In the beginning, I knew I wanted to blog about things that I enjoy doing but I didn’t really have a plan.  I’d take it one day at a time and just figure it out as I go.

A common thread ended up being the whole “green” thing.  I have always been eco-conscious, so to speak, but I never really thought about it.  Now that I have been blogging, and have it all down in front of me (and posted all over the web) I have gravitated toward recycling and repurposing ideas for my posts.  I decided to count how many ideas I put out there and got eighty-three…holy crap!

It’s funny how things work out.  I even have gone on the anti-plastic bag bandwagon and use only recycled bags at the store.  I get irritated if someone hands me a plastic bag or I forget to bring one inside.  Next thing I know I am carrying baby and all my purchases without a bag!

Since this has been an important topic for me, so here it is again… eighty-three crafty and inventive ways to reduce, reuse, & recycle and turn your trash into treasure! Just click on the link or picture to find out more!
