Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Waste? Not! Day 2 - Trashy Crafter Giveaway


Welcome to Waste? Not! Day 2. This week I'm questioning the word "WASTE" and celebrating people and organizations who do the same. They see potential in the discarded. They use it to make something useful. Something beautiful. Something that reminds us that our definition of "disposable" has become dangerously distorted over time. Kicking us off: a giveaway from the wonderful Trashy Crafter. Kim was a guest blogger last summer. Very simply, she and her mom keep books out of landfills. 




Yes, books end up in landfills, especially children's picture books that get a little "icky" - ask any librarian who "couldn't give them away." Trashy Crafter turns books into beads. Then they use those beads to create jewelry. To celebrate their trashy crafting, I'm giving away one of Kim's beautiful book-bead bracelets.



It's the bracelet pictured at the top of this post and above, made from the pages of Caps for Sale. If you have a child in your life and you haven't read this book to him/her, do so. Then enter to win a little bling!


There are lots of ways to enter (through the secure Rafflecopter widget below), including some you can do every day. So come back tomorrow and enter again! 

Giveaway opens 8am CST, Tuesday 1/20 and ends midnight CST Saturday, 1/24. WINNER announced Monday, 1/26. Open to US residents, 18 and older. Retail value is $25
