Make the Trend: Sustainable IS Chic
by Kollabora Follow

posted 4 years ago

The older we get, the more we're into the idea of minimized consumption. They say the less stuff you have, the happier we are and we agree, but we also think it's what you do with what you have that makes all the difference. Handmaking clothing, DIY'ing accessories and upcycling home decor do wonders for not only our aesthetic lives, but our mental health as well.

So in honor of Earth Day, we suggest you take a scan through you closet, rummage through your scrap bin and scope out a few of our favorite ways to upcycle, refashion and otherwise put what you already have to good use!

May we suggest you...
