Recycling is one of the best and easiest ways you can help our planet stay clean, and what better way than to re-purpose old things that would otherwise see the bottom of a recycling bin! I’ll admit, some of these ideas might be a little hard to achieve (especially by yourself), but you could grab a friend, put some work into it, and really surprise yourself!
