Take a spin through the images section of this post to view a variety creative recycling storage solutions out there. Below are links to the showcased bins.
If anyone builds DIY bins, like Alper did, keep a record of the materials you use and the steps taken to construct the bin. Post it online so that others can replicate your bins! -- The end goal would be to collect and post a range of easy-to-build bin styles that appeal to any home decoration taste like: mod/contemporary, rustic/traditional, vintage/retro, industrial, international, and for the kids’ room. Try creating easy bins for kids to build. Or, try building out of recycled/upcycled content. Basic reqs would be:
- The steps to build the containers must be easy to follow and to replicate in as few steps as possible–so that anyone at home can build the bins
- One must create a system where multiple items can be recycled (ie, plastic, paper, cans, glass, cans, etc.)
This post builds on Meena's and Alper's "at home hacks" ideas, Tom's "reuse and recycle with the kids" idea, and the many ideas of the creative Etsy community who are building cool recycling bins and items out of recycled content.
