TIPPY TUESDAY 🍹.
Just had a Taobao haul or Redmart haul? Don't Know what to do with the pile of boxes and bubble wraps lying around? Well don't just throw them away! Don't even recycle them yet. Call stores like us up! We eco stores will welcome your boxes as we give them a second life by using them as packing materials! 🍒
Recycling isn't always the only way to handle trash. Reusing and repurposing items can sometimes be a better option. An option that allows you to control and ensure the fate of the item. It can also take away the need to purchase or create a new object! 🌍.
Tag us in your #tippytuesday projects! We would love to share them and parade your lovely creations ❤
“Creating an ethical wardrobe is a process, not something that happens overnight. The first step towards a more intentional closet is defining your personal style. What cuts, colors and textures are you drawn to? Once you streamline your personal style, it can help guide future purchases to ensure anything you bring in to your closet will be loved and worn again and again. More outfits with less pieces also means that you can afford to invest in quality items that are "ethical" in the way that is most important to you, whether that means they are handmade, fair trade, sustainable, second-hand or locally-produced.”

This massive custom made table has been adopted and will be going to its forever home this weekend!
Working on our next dining table now!
We also have a cool table involving vintage piano dollies and a near 6ft round table with metal and reclaimed wood that we are working on also!!
Wrapping up a rainy Tennessee Monday, thinking that having a headboard with reading lights (doorknob dimmer switches) and a hidden compartment with a built-in charging station would have made bed a great place to spend the weekend. .
The big reveal, well if you watch the video it is 😂 of my latest quick build. So I had what I’m reliably informed is a nato munitions box from 1974 that I wanted to do something cool with so this is what I came up with ! The video also involves a trip upstate the museum workshop for a bit of help from the guys. so here’s part one of the project ! enjoy .... #makersgonnamake#nato#repurpose#propreplica#movieprops#hansolo#cosplay#childhood @testedcom @normchan @therealadamsavage @toysnetflix @starwars @discovery @ukquest

The latest rack in what I'm tentatively calling the "Precious Trash" series. A useful second life for a frame that you know damn well you'll never ride again, but you just can't part with. #repurpose#handbuilt#madeingrandrapids
My broccoli stem is shredded and is ready to be repurposed. A lot of attention has been raised about food waste recently. I have felt like I was ahead of the game because at least I compost and eat left overs. But over the last month I have looked at all of the pieces of food I throw out during my meal prep. For instance, I have never used my broccoli stems before, they just go right into the compost bucket. But tonight, that changes. I shredded up the stem and put them in the fridge to repurpose. I’m thinking a slaw with some carrots for a side dish tomorrow night. Using the scraps is going to open up new doors cooking and will ultimately save money and reduce waste. Sorry compost pile, they’ll be less scraps for you. - -

Back in the day, gums were made from natural rubber, but today they are made from synthetic material, mineral oil specifically. Think about it: you are chewing on something, sometimes for hours, that is made from the same material as gas or your plastic cup.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are, however, natural gums entirely made from natural caoutchouc or other natural rubbers (usually at organic/ health stores!).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Could you ever give up gum?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
