Lemonaid. Honest drink. Happy Head.
Here’s a company we can identify with: ‘when you’ve finished your drink, you can show off your DIY Skills’.
If you’ve not heard of Lemonaid its a nifty company with a moral compass. Every bottle of their organic ChariTea and Lemonaid range actively supports social initiatives in the farming regions in Asia, Africa and South America where the raw ingredients for the drinks are grown.
So far more than £560,000 has been given to social, economic and cultural projects in these regions as part of their ‘help people to help themselves’ approach on top of the Fair-trade premium pay they receive. The idea is that ’empowered people hold the key to overcoming many of the world’s problems’. How great is that? Especially in what seemed like very dark days in 2015…
So perhaps get Lemonaid on your radar and then try out your own crafty ‘upcycle’ project. Here’s a few ideas to get your creative thinking going. Some simple and some requiring a little more DIY prowess!
By attaching pourers and pumps (which can be easily bought online) you can turn bottles into oil & Vinegar or Sugar or soap dispensers. Or if you want to go big what about a cluster of lights – any qualified electrician can help with this:
Or a set of variable height stools with the crates? We could see these in a playroom to help with fortress making…
Or a spice rack for those who cook and want proper storage sizes!
Or lastly (but not least) the ultimate outdoor ‘chandelier’ light. Perfect if you love hosting bbqs or mini-festivals in your garden. Simply insert an LED light into the middle to give a beautiful glow at night.
If you try any of these upcycles then do send us an image. We would love to see them (or any of your creations!).
Have a great weekend and look differently at those objects around you! It’s often the most satisfying and fun process…
