A lot of people nowadays are recycling items to make crafts. This is a great way to reuse old stuff and make something new out of it.

Especially if you’re a mom, re-using old materials like toilet rolls, paper towel rolls and more is a great way to recycle items AND teach your kids how to appreciate any item they have at home.

It is a good way for brands to give their customers a chance to help the planet, while making something beautiful and unique.

Crafts made with recycled materials also usually cost less than crafts made with new materials.
