Reduce, Reuse, Recycle ... Round-up! August 2023

Reduce, reuse, recycle is a phrase many of us hear all the time. The 3 Rs are a good way of saving money, energy, and natural resources. Recycled or up-cycled materials can make beautiful art and craft projects.

Check out these projects from fellow Lettuce Crafters using materials that may have otherwise ended up in a landfill.

These are great and from a wide variety of people. Love all the creativity.


These are so great! I received that Plarn bag in a swap and it was used to hold and take my recycling until it got too many holes.

I love these fun round ups you mods have been doing!


So many upcycled pieces. Great collection. Than you for sharing, @geekgirl

And the dresser is still living it’s new, reclaimed life in my bedroom! Not bad for something I literally took out of the trash pile!
