So - pottering on with more zero waste activities. Sometimes it seems a little overwhelming, but I figure if I keep doing a little day by almost every day, then I will have a whole lot of structures in place that will then support the lifestyle that I wish to maintain. YES! Sounds like a reason for a spreadsheet. I love spreadsheets so much.
One of the things that does happen in our house is textile waste. Old undies, for example- I mean - you can't send those to Vinnies, right? Although, apparently people do. EW. I suppose I could sell to perves...hmmm...but no. They become dusters. Old t-shirts that are beyond donation - knitting yarn. Fabric scraps - patchwork pieces..but what about the tiny bits? Stuffing! And the others? Well, here's one idea for a start;
Mama S bought me a lovely poomphy and much needed new ironing board cover the other day. The old one was threadbare, stained and cut. But what to DO with it? And then I realised - I needed an inner cushion for the pineapple cover I made the other day that is BUSTING to go on my bed. Enter the ironing board cover and a bit of old pillowcase that had been upcycled here.
And hello cushion inner....(still need some more stuffing).
