Today's Writing Prompt comes from my good friend, Moderator_Elise, who is the mod for the Save the Planet Message Board.
Hi Everyone, I am cleaning out closets this weekend, and I started to think about how to recycle old clothes. What do you do with old clothes that are still good and usable? What about clothes that are worn out and can't be donated? Do you have any creative ideas for using those clothes so that they don't go in the trash?
I recently took some crummy old jeans, and I cut them up into 5" squares. I sewed them into beanbags for games at my daughter's school picnic. Any other cool ideas out there?
This post and the awesome replies on the Save the Planet Message Board got me thinking. . . the holidays are coming up. What crafty holiday gifts can we make for people with things that we would normally just throw away? Not just clothes but everything – magazines, ribbon, wrapping paper, jewelry, barrettes, gum wrappers. . . Clean out your room and see if there is stuff you don't use or like anymore that can be transformed into something new and amazing with your creative genius!
