The Art of Recycling: "Do It Yourself (DIY)” Creative & Fun Recycling
How are some people engineering fun "at home hacks” in order to tune recycling to their personalities, blend recycling into their home environment, and make recycling a conversation piece? And, they share their designs/creations with all of us. This post builds upon Meena Kadri’s “Hacking Your Home to Become a Better Recycler” contribution.
Meena Kadri's contribution discussing “at home hacking” approaches that encourage recycling, the idea that came to mind is an Etsy-like movement targeted at the design of recycling bins or recycled materials.
