Craft Recycled: 5 Upcycled Soda Can Crafts via @greenupgrader

While I’m generally up for upcycling anything anyone can, I have to say this is a waste of pop tabs. Check with your local school, generally they will have a program where they collect pop tabs and turn them in from money or equipment. You help the schools, and the tabs get recycled giving them a dual purpose as opposed to upcycling’s single purpose. Recycling aluminum only requires 5% of the energy use of mining and smelting new aluminum, so by keeping the tabs out of the recycling chain you’re requiring 20x the energy to replace them with virgin ore. This is one case where the Third R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) really should come before the second (or does it need to be Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Upcycle then Compost (?))
