Crafts For Change

From the very start of this school year, I knew I wanted my project to involve the worsening climate crisis. When brainstorming ideas, I found it difficult to come up with a doable project that would bring about an actual change in the world. Everything I initially devised was either unrealistic in scale or had too small of an effect on the problem I wanted to tackle. Soon I realized that if I wanted my project to succeed, I needed to narrow down my objective and get more people involved than just myself. This year I created a website that targets household waste production in the United States–in the form of crafts! It was very fun to give a practical purpose to something I have always had a love for. The site offers inspiration and simple instructions for transforming and repurposing old items that would otherwise be sent to the landfill. Happy Crafting!
