The best is yet to come
Looking to disguise the wear and tear on your dining room chair? Grab a paintbrush. Fresh flowers but no vase? Grab a jam jar. Whether you are seeking to update a piece of furniture or are searching for a new use for those empty tins – upcycling is the best way to splash some new life into old items.
So, enjoy a more sustainable summer this year and create less waste. With more time at home why not repurpose items that may have previously been thrown away? By choosing to reuse, you can help the environment and save money.
And as an added incentive, the Surrey Environment Partnership (SEP) has launched an exciting new upcycling competition.
Taking place throughout July, Surrey residents will simply need to submit a photograph of a recently completed upcycling project for a chance to win a zero waste hamper of goodies donated by Fetch’em from the Cupboard and Pedrick’s Zero Waste Shop.
For more information on the competition and for some upcycling inspiration visit the SEP website.
