Need Upcycling Ideas on the Go? There's an App for That…
Cleaning out a closet, or basement, or other space in your home, and just hate to send all of that potentially useful material to the landfill? We get it: that’s one of the many reasons we’ve published upcycling ideas for all sorts of materials, and different kinds of end products. Still, being able to search for projects you could do with any material would be really useful, and even better if you didn’t have to go boot up the computer to do it.
If Sean McKenna and Jenelle Montilone get their Kickstarter project funded, you’ll be able to do just that: they’re developing the Create Change App for crafty types who want to make use of some of that “junk,” or share their own projects with other upcyclers. I’ll let Jenelle explain:
Pretty cool, huh? Of course, the app will only be available if their project gets funded: they’re asking for $17,000 to complete the work on the Create Change app. If you like the idea, or simply want to find out how you can make use of an old pair of tennis shoes, or a gunked-up shower curtain, consider kicking in a few bucks to help bring this to market (for both iPhone and Android platforms).
Kind of an artsy-craftsy mobile Instructables – I like it! If you know of similar apps, or want to share what you’d really like to find in such a program, share your thoughts with us.
