- auclairdelalune: recycled fabrics for human and habitat
- Au clair de la lune is about the past lives of clothes, or where everything old is new again. I make useful and beautiful items for adults, children, and homes out of recycled fabric.

This idea for creatively re-using what would otherwise be discarded comes just in time for the summer season. While it may seem like such an obvious use for recyclable containers, I've noticed that every trip to the beach(and living in Florida we are there quite a bit) we are the only family who seems to bring those single use plastic containers along for the trip.
So many eco-friendly solutions do equate to thrift. Why buy lots of plastic beach toys when many of the containers that end up in your recycling bin come in all different shapes and sizes that are perfect for building sand castles? Also useful at the beach are those nylon mesh bags that fruits and vegetables come in. Use them to collect and rinse shells or to gather and rinse all of those smaller beach toys before you leave.
Start saving your yoghurt containers, laundry soap lids and scoops now - just in time for your next trip to the beach.
It's a great way to save both your wallet and the planet!
