Extra Credit: living green with white cloud

This post brought to you by White Cloud. All opinions are 100% mine.

Some of my favorite project and crafts supplies are recyclable items. Over the past few years, I’ve shared many “upcycling” and “recycling” projects.

I love making things from items that would normally get thrown away. We do recycle in our family. We have several bins for paper, plastic and metal. And I’m always grabbing things and adding them to my craft supply bin. Here’s are a few projects that I created from “trash”.

Living the Green 21. An old sweater wrapped around a coffee can becomes new storage.  2. Paper towel rolls become seedling pots.  3. An old box becomes a bin for e-waste like dead batteries.  4.  Newspaper rolled up becomes herb starter pots.  5.  A paper towel tube covered in fabric makes a great eye glass case.  6. Plastic container cut into mini greenhouses.

Living the Green1.  Paper scraps remade into paper tags.  2. Packaging paper wrapped around cans  3.  Security envelope scratch paper  4. Brown grocery bag wreath  5.  Security envelope note pads  6. Old t-shirts to coasters
Besides recycling and upcycling, I like to try to buy eco-friendly products when I can. So this is exciting news - Walmart has an exclusive new line of bath and tissue products that are made from 100 percent recycled fibers. Introducing paper products from White Cloud GreenEarth.
