Recycling Ideas On Pinterest

Readers, are you all clued in to the wonderful world of Pinterest? If you aren't, I highly recommend that you get an invitation and join. As with every online site, you should review the guidelines carefully and make sure you want to be part of the site. If you do, you'll see how it is a great tool for inspiration, marketing, business development, and creativity.

But I've digressed, of course! The reason I'm talking about Pinterest today is because I found an entire world of recycling ideas and crafts and it makes me so happy and I think it will for you, too!

My board on Pinterest where I keep my favorite recycled/upcycled ideas is called "Upcycled Ideas" (hardly imaginative, I know).  As of now, it only has four items, but I'm looking forward to collecting more and referring back to them at various dates to use them as needed.

While I love all of the ideas on the board and definitely intend to use the toilet paper roll options, my favorite of  is the "Holder for Charging Cell Phone" by Make it and Love it.

What I love even more is that they give you the step by step process on how to make your own. Seriously, how awesome is that?! Of course tutorials are the rage on line, especially for craft lovers like you and me, but when you combine the exchange of ideas on how to make our lifestyles more eco-friendly, it's even better! I encourage us all to take our favorite recycled/upcycled ideas and share them with the ever growing community of pinterest users. You never know what impact you may have just from sharing something as simple as reusing a lotion bottle to charge your cell phone.

If any of you have recycling/upcycling ideas that you want to share, please drop them in the comments section, especially if it has a URL and/or get them on pinterest for others to discover and share.

Happy pining, creating, and recycling!
