Turning garbage into something useful is a talent. It means that you not only solve a problem, but you also do your bit to protect the environment.

Reusing them is one way to reduce your impact on the environment. Whether you are looking for greener ways to decorate your home and office, or just need some low-cost crafts, here are some examples to get you started!
