This Earth Day, 22 April 2021, here are some great ideas from GLAD on how to make your trash into treasure by upcycling.

Take a moment to consider how things you typically think of as trash could be given new life through a little upcycling project. It’s a win-win: you divert more waste from landfill, while creating cute and useful new items for your home!

* Turn a plastic bottle into a backyard planter

* Craft custom stamps out of old lids

* Use a jar to hang candles outside

* Craft a tin can wind chime
