Sweet Inspiration - Earth Day + Repurposed Home Decor

EARTH DAY

Love this Chevron Recycled Wood Planter box by 91204!

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -- Margaret Mead

If you have been following lately, you have noticed I have had several posts on repurposing.  This is such a hot and fun trend right now and perfect for EARTH DAY! 

By repurposing we help save unwanted items from going to the landfill, and we get save some green ($$) while we are at it!

Here are some beautiful projects I have been inspired by!  I hope they will bring inspiration to you.

Great ideas. Love the chevron planters, and the Printable Tree Planting Kit for the kids is really nice-so important that they are involved and feel 'ownership' in the projects.
