Happy Earth Day! In celebration for this special day, I made a pair of statement earrings with recycled plastic. The plastic is from packaging that was once used for fruit (blueberries, specifically). It makes the perfect inexpensive base for jewelry projects; I've got an entire list of other ideas to try out.
Although, if you're anything like me, every day is Earth Day. I'm an avid recycler and will always stop to take an extra 30 seconds to sort out my trash into different bins; I always feel so relieved when a cafe or street corner has separate cans for different materials. I've also been known to carry empty plastic or glass bottles with me, just because there wasn't a recycling bin in sight. Some of my friends tease me for it, but I'm totally okay with it. Even if that means wearing plastic fruit packaging on my ears.
