Upcycle Your Home


We’re always trying to make it easier for ourselves to reuse and reduce waste - so we went on a research spree to find some of the best, least time consuming and most innovative ideas to help kickstart easier recycling which we can use again instantly (we well as saving some cash!).

LADDER + DRAWER SHELVING

Rejuvenate an old ladder or set of drawers - perhaps paint or redecorate them and secure them onto your wall for statement yet classic shelving.

OLD SWEATERS + THROWS

Old cardigans, jumpers and blankets/ throws can easily be reused for furniture covers or reusable cup heat protectors. If you don’t have the tailoring hand, perhaps take it to a material shop for some advice and measurements!

CHAIR TOWEL RAIL

Maybe your old chair back can be used as a two in one towel rail and shelf? Or perhaps use the entire chair, upside down, for more shelving and hanging space on the bottom of the seat and legs.

THE OPTIONS OF JARS

We know the classic reuse for empty jars: food containers. But why not also upcycle them as candle and tea-light holders, vases and glasses?

THE TOOTHBRUSH

I recently found out that each plastic toothbrush takes 700 years to decompose. Each! There are 100% natural and biodegradable options out there, such as the Bamboo toothbrush, which, as well as being compostable, can be used as a cleaning tool after your use. From nooks in the bathroom that are hard to reach to your shoes, the size and flexibility of the bristles are excellent alternatives to a new plastic sponge or cloth.

UPCYCLED FINDS

In our research journey, we also found a few pre-made upcycled goods by the company Friends of Earth (foeshop.co.uk) which we were so inspired by! Check out our faves…

  • The 100% Recycled Bottle Throw

  • The Urban Bee Box - made from a composite material of clay and recycled plastic

  • The Recycled Leather Satchel
