The lovely LindaEve started this Earth-inspired week off with a wonderful post on monday – The Truth About Plastics. The industry of creating plastics and even recycling plastics is a disgusting, environmentally disastrous reality that is destroying our environment. So what can we do about it? Avoid it whenever possible! But I admit that is very hard to avoid 100% of the time. Most of us are doomed to end up with some plastics in our lives… so REPURPOSE it!

In my opinion, repurposing your plastics into something useful, inspiring, or just plain pretty is the best thing you can do with your plastics. Instead of throwing them back into the vicious plastic cycle, turn your plastic into something awesome! Do you have any tutorials on how to reuse plastic?
