Last Friday I shared on crafting the frugal way. This week I want to share a book review that I previously posted on blogspot. Make Garbage Great tells lots of way to make good use of items that would normally be thrown away. I love things that are made like this. Enjoy the review!
Fully titled Make Garbage Great: The TerraCycle Family Guide to a Zero-Waste Lifestyle
It’s a large hardbound, 224 page, book. You will find fascinating information, little-known facts, awesome graphics, and colorful images on every page. This is in addition to the cool projects that are shown throughout. Each project includes easy to read instructions and step-by-step photos.
For example, here are the pages for the project that I started with from the book:
While I am here, let me share a picture of one of the finished Food Wrapper Napkin Rings that I made. These are cool, and lots of fun to make too.
So many other projects that I love in the book and hope to get a chance to make. Just a few of those are: Food Pouch Tote Bag, Tin Can Office Organizer, Window Picture Frame, and Eggshell Planter.
Make Garbage Great is set up into 8 chapters:
Each chapter examines the material in our every day lives, offers a detailed time time of the substance, addresses the current state of affairs, contains a DIY section, talks about the future, and provides useful resources. This in addition to lists of reuse ideas, quotes, interviews and more.
It will really open your eyes up to the importance of recycling and reusing plus give you some awesome ideas on things to Make Garbage Great.
I highly recommend it!
