1. Caribbean dress

I’m sure everyone has at least one forgotten scarf in your closet that you don’t wear anymore. Here, I’d like to share my secret technique to turn an old scarf into a beautiful, versatile Caribbean dress that’s perfect for your next Caribbean trip. It normally takes one 35”x35” (90cmx 90cm) scarf to make one dress.

2. Recycle an old umbrella into a perfect shopping bag

If you have an old, broken umbrella lying somewhere in your house or in your car trunk, don’t throw it away. It makes great eco-bags. One umbrella yieldeds 2 regular size eco-bags and one small pouch. The original snap fastener strap is used to keep the bag neatly folded when not in use.
