Recently I’ve been doing some research on textile recycling. I’m continually trying to make zero-waste decisions in my life and figuring out what to do with old clothes and linens is one of them. The statistics about how many textiles end up in landfills are fairly appalling. 🙁 Most of us have a few sad or too-small t-shirts stuffed into the backs of our dressers. So rather than send them to the landfill or have to part with sentimental items, I’ve rounded up 20 repurposed t-shirt DIYs. So we can craft our way to a happier planet!

Some of these projects would be great ways to save t-shirts that have meaning to you but that you don’t wear anymore. Like concert tees, or the t-shirts from your camp counsellor days.
I love these repurposed t-shirt DIYs because A. they keep some textiles out of the landfill and B. they are super frugal.
It’s too easy to run out to the mall or go online and give in to consumerism culture. Gone are the days of making the most of what we already have.
I’m on a bit of a personal journey towards minimalism and simplifying and I’m at the stage where I’m physically stopping myself from engaging in retail therapy to sooth my complex emotions. I really don’t have the money or the space for that nonsense anymore. Maybe you don’t either. So let’s do this together. Finding ways to re-love the belongings we already have and saving money to pursue the dreams that really matter. One t-shirt at a time!
Ok, enough about me. Here’s the roundup!
