Eco-Activity: Make something from nothing!


You’re probably curious why there’s an eco-activity on a Monday… Well, it’s Waste Reduction Week in Canada! This week, we’re bringing you five exclusive Eco-Activities every day of the week to show you all the different ways you can reduce waste in your life. Make sure to keep checking the Eco-Activities page each day to learn more about reducing waste at home! 

For today’s Eco-Activity, try creating one or all of these crafts made from common household items that tend to get tossed into the garbage! Repurposing things that would otherwise go in the trash is a great way to reduce your household waste and keep things out of the landfill.
