If you’re seeing this, there are chances you have at your home, our bearer of Bare goodies - shipping boxes! You finally received the products you've been eagerly waiting for, but now you're left wondering what to do with the corrugated boxes that brought them to you. These boxes have fulfilled their purpose of delivering your goods, and they deserve more than just being thrown into the dustbin.

You can always compost your boxes too! Use it as a brown layer. Don’t forget to cut or tear the cardboard into small pieces first!

By taking part in a simple DIY project, you'll have the opportunity to create with your own hands something functional and personalised while also doing your part in diverting some waste from the landfills. So why not give it a try and see how fun and rewarding upcycling can be?

 While it may seem daunting at first, we believe that everyone can get involved in upcycling as we’ve tried to simplify all the steps for everyone who can work a pair of scissors and an appetite to create!

This could just be the weekend DIY activity you were looking for! Please take photos and tag us on social media when you DIY any of these designs. We would love to share it with our Bare Community :)
