Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Inspiration: London refabs and street art


I just spent 9 days in England. Mostly London... a little Cambridge. When I lived in London in 1998, I lived on Shoreditch high street, right above Mary's Shoes (which is still there).  The area was a dump. Now it's hipster heaven ... and rich with street art. Here are my favorites along with some fun repurposing ideas spotted in London and Cambridgeshire.

I finally got to see one of these phone-box libraries for myself! Friends of mine live in the small village of Lolworth, Cambridgeshire. They (the village) paid a little less than $50 for the privilege of owning the box and using it for whatever purpose. They decided on a community book exchange.
