The wonderful world of DIY (Do It Yourself) is one trend that we can really get on board with and generally improve our life. By doing things ourselves, we reuse and recycle materials that would otherwise be thrown away. We also get in touch with a new and craftier side of ourselves, it is such a great feeling of satisfaction by being able to re-create, re-purpose things that we don’t use anymore and in some DIYers out there then became a beginning of a small business and also supporting small businesses along the way.

When we use handy, local, and many times free materials, we take ownership over a product’s lifecycle and significantly minimize the environmental hazards of purchasing newly manufactured products, such as natural resource extraction and pollution.

Basically, it’s a win-win-win scenario that’s good for our wallets, our environment, and our wellbeing.
