Spring Cleaning: Eco-Chic Ideas For Your Home

Spring Cleaning: Eco-Chic Ideas For Your Home

We've covered our bases with green cleaning products, ideas for re-using old towels (shaggy-cool bath mats!), and tips for cleaning out and organizing those pesky junk drawers.  But what do you do with all those random items you've cleared out?  Sure, you could throw them away, but we have a better idea.  Put on your creative caps and turn them into one-of-a-kind, eco-chic items for your home!

From wine cork trivets to recycled paper notebooks, Whole Living has put together a guide to 25 eco-chic ideas for your home.  So, don't throw out those t-shirts, they might just make pretty cool pillows.  And those old sweaters?  Turn them into seat covers.  My favorite of the bunch is this tutorial for turning old scarves into a cozy quilt.

While Whole Living's guide has some awesome ideas, I know Curbly is a community full of creativity and ingenuity.  What are some of your eco-chic ideas or projects?  Have you turned something disposable into a clever centerpiece or pillow, etc.?  Share your thoughts in the comments!
