Did you know that according to Environmentalistseveryday.org, if we put all of the solid waste collected in the U.S. in a line of average garbage trucks, that line of trucks could cross the country, extending from NY to LA, more than 100 times?!?! That’s CRAZY! I don’t know about you, but this stat has me taking a closer look at exactly what’s getting thrown out at our house. And I’m starting to see that a lot of what has long been considered “trash” can actually be re-purposed to be even cooler than it was originally. We loved this idea so much, that we created a board on our Pinterest page devoted exclusively to “UPCYCLING”. Here are some of our favorite pins!
