Green Your Old Stuff: CDs

Recycle CDs Repurposing old household items is a great way to reduce waste and avoid making new purchases. This week's tips, then, are about reusing everyday items to clean and smarten up your home.

 Tip #4: What to do with old CDs

CDs aren't biodegradable, and they're hard to recycle. However, consider these uses for your old discs before chucking them: Thread string through their holes and hang them from fruit trees; the reflection scares away thieving birds and squirrels. Cover old discs with colorful contact paper to make decorative coasters. Create a fun craft project for kids by painting a CD with acrylic or fabric paint, then using it to make scratch art.
