About Love and Trash
Love and Trash is a DIY blog for people who do things differently.
We are tired of reading about people who change the world: we are changing the world, and we want you to join in.
We believe that it is possible to make something out of nothing. We dive in dumpsters. We recycle and upcycle and compost. We try new things, even though we might not be good at them.
We think your ideas are as good as ours.
Love and Trash wants you to share your creations and inspirations. We know that you do tiny awesome things in your life that deserve greater recognition. We want to be the ones to recognize your achievements.
We believe in radical interdependence and acceptance. That means YES is unanimous, and it means that your contributions improve our work.
It’s a big world, and we’re a little blog. But with your help, we can be bigger and better.
