3 Ways to Waste Less and Reuse More at Home

Are you looking for ways to re-use more? 

Test your DIY skills

Can you repair something instead of replacing it? There are lots of how to videos on YouTube or have a look on IFixIt which has lots of repair guides.

How about giving something a new lease of life by upcycling it? There is lots of inspiration out there but if you’re not sure where to start have a look on Pinterest.
