Upcycling is an easy way to save money. Swapping clothes can save a fortune when you want to update your wardrobe – as can upcycling clothes you already have.
Making your own toiletries can reduce waste by cutting back on packaging. You can also save a fortune by using common store cupboard ingredients such as oats, bicarbonate of soda and lemon juice to make cleansers, face masks and bath balm.
If you’re based in Loughborough, add Upcycle Your Life to your diary. Taking place at Fearon Hall on Saturday 28th April, 10am- noon, you can bring clothes to swap, learn more about toiletry making and meet other upcycling fans. Save money and reduce waste to feel good in more ways than one.
