Americans send 11 million pounds of fashion waste to landfill every single year. Our studio is looking to lessen that number. This yarn ball used to be a tshirt and a pair of pants. What will it be in its next life? #multitudesstudio #rescuedmaterials #blankcanvas

Just keep working. #multicolor #multitudesstudio

It's amazing what can come of upcycling! I've had some great responses to my story about how I revamped these chairs, so I'll be adding a DIY to the blog soon! ๐Ÿ”ธ

THIS SATURDAY! ๐Ÿ—“
@esa.nyc is coming to LA to bring you a whole day of green goodness at the Do & Brew at @modoyoga! Come out and learn different ways to upcycle your clothing :) Hope you meet you there ๐Ÿค—

Todayโ€™s #TeachMeTuesday is all about UPCYCLING.
.
Upcycling means to reuse a discarded material to create a higher quality product.
.
Here are three ways you can upcycle old clothes:
.
๐Ÿ”ธSew on a patch of your favorite material. If youโ€™ve got any scraps laying around, you can create a cool patchwork look by adding them to an old button-down shirt. ๐Ÿ‘•
.
๐Ÿ‘–Fringe an old pair of jeans! You can cut the hem and pull the weft threads - or - you can buy fringe trim at the store and stitch it on.
.
๐Ÿ”ธ100% cotton items can be dyed using natural dyes like indigo, turmeric, cochineal and many more. Make sure to set the color with distilled white vinegar so that it doesnโ€™t wash out.๐Ÿšฟ

Our blog is now live! We'll be posting our #teachmetuesday posts here for your reference, some fun upcycling DIYs, and other articles on being green! ๐ŸŒ

Happy Monday! โœจ

Finishing touches ๐Ÿ

The winner of our #multitudesstudiogiveaway is @rgapa1!! ๐ŸŽ‰ Please send us an email or DM today to claim your prize!

During last weekโ€™s #TeachMeTuesday, we encouraged everyone to consider textile recycling. A lot of you out there had questions about how you can recycle your textiles if they arenโ€™t good enough to make it onto the thrift store floor. ๐Ÿ‘š๐Ÿ‘•๐Ÿ‘–๐Ÿ‘—
.
Well, unfortunately, textile recycling isnโ€™t something that you can physically do in your own home. However, there are many companies out there, helping to keep textiles out of landfill. First, they collect materials and sort them - commonly by content and then by color. Once the fibers are grouped, the recycler is able to grind down the materials with heavy machinery and then convert the fiber into a new material through the milling process.โ™ป๏ธ
.
Thereย  are many textile recyclers out there like USAgain, Miller Waste Mills, Me & Eco, American Textile Recycling Services & Greenmarket Clothing Collection. Check out our story for some more highlights on some of these companies! ๐Ÿ’ซ
