The Ocean Conservancy, which organizes an annual International Coastal Clean-Up, has published its results in the 2012 Trash Index. You’re not imagining it: as the global population swells, tankers continue to leak oil, and plastic water bottles continue to be our favorite way to drink tap water, the world’s beaches are getting dirtier.
Nearly 600,000 volunteers worked in multiple countries to pick up and record the over nine million pounds of trash listed in this report. Check out their trashy findings, download a helpful pocket guide to recycling and if you’re inclined, donate to help their efforts. And for the love of all things oceanic, if you smoke, find a better place than the ocean or ground to throw your cigarette butts (the number one piece of trash found on beaches)!

The river Thames in London eats 40 tonnes of rubbish a year! Reason #1756 to reuse, reduce and recycle!

Awesome re-use here.  I bet you could find an old rake at many a yard sale.  Also makes a great scarf or jewelry hook too.  via ReNest.

Business cards, but better

A brilliant and adorable re-use of old fabric scraps, for the crafty ones out there…

coujones:

I actually have three different business cards- two for work and one for myself.  I spoke about my want to make new cards at the beginning of the year, and so I got them made.

I kept the card simple because I had big plans for the other side.  Successful plans!

Cards in basket 1

Cards in basket 2

Cards front and back

I’ll post a how-to shortly.
