Re-purpose old furniture or appliances

We are an 11th grade class at Cathcart High School in Johannesburg, South Africa, and we are working to re-purpose old furniture or appliances. Why waste these resources and see them end up in a landfill? In our class, we learned about how landfills actually lead to global warming, because methane is generated in massive quantities and small leaks are dangerous. Instead of seeing these old products end up in the trash, you can use your creativity to think of new uses for them. We’d love to see what you come up with! As you can see in our photo, one of our favorite projects was turning a toilet into a planter. We’ve also used old stereos for alternative bookshelves, repurposed a couch into a fishtank, and many more interesting projects. Please try it out. You’ll be surprised at how a little innovation can lead to new discoveries.
