It’s Old Sock Week at Trash Backwards, and we’re hoping you’ll all join the fun…
Old Sock Week?!
Yes, that’s right. We’ve been having a great time with our Pinterest boards, and we’ve just started a new one called My Trash, Backwards. Each week we’ll be announcing a new upcycling challenge focused on one item. We’ll include the best offerings here to create a crowdsourced Trash Backwards Do It Yourself upcycling resource for each item.
This week, our item is old socks. Why socks? Because almost everyone has at least one lone sock, or one that’s worn beyond foot comfort, and because old socks are versatile when it comes to reuse. Here are a few online lists of ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
We’ll be adding more projects to this post over the next week, so check back to see what’s new. There are a few ways to share your tips, photos, or tutorials to reuse old socks:
If you have a Pinterest account, start your own “My Trash, Backwards” board and upload your photo to a new pin there – We’ll find it and repin to our board.
You can upload a photo directly to our Trash Backwards Facebook wall here.
You can email your photo(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
However you share your original photos with us, please include the name we should credit, any blog or website URL we can direct people to, and remember to send only those images you own.
Join Old Sock Week – The more, the merrier, and the fewer old socks we’ll see in our landfills when they could be doing great things.
And if you have a sock reuse to add, please let us know in the comments below or on our crowd-source page.
