Grist's green-living pioneer, the Greenie Pig, dives into her own dumpster and emerges with a veritable craft fair of useful reusables.
Right now, we’re living in a reuse renaissance — and I, for one, am thrilled. I love the idea of reusing stuff that would’ve ended up in the trash. I love that you basically have to know how to knit a clutch purse out of gum wrappers and dog hair to sign into Pinterest these days. I love that reusing stuff is so hot right now that we’ve coined an entirely new word — upcycling — because “reusing” just cannot encompass the awesomeness of what we’re doing with all this garbage.
