I’m a sucker for saving rubber bands. Can’t throw them out. Even the little purple ones that keep the asparagus bundles together! I do reuse them… ahem.. on special occasions.
What do you reuse? Wrapping paper? Newspaper? The back of envelopes? Twist ties from the bread bags? Does it save you money? Or just make you feel you are helping the planet? A woman attending one of my workshops sliced off the ribbons on new garments (the ribbons that secure the garment to the hanger) and saved them for card making! She was kind enough to let us all laugh at her (as we all held onto our own dirty recycling secrets).
I’d love to know: what are you silly, clever or not-sure-why recycling ways?
