Hello, beautiful people. This Earth Day we’re partnering with those cool cats at Kuttlefish to challenge you to turn your e-waste into something extraordinary. So grab those old USB cables, busted MP3 players, and dusty printers—then channel your inner MacGyver and upcycle away! You could have a shot at winning an All-New Pro Tech Toolkit, a 64 Bit Driver Kit, iFixit t-shirts, or a gift card from Kuttlefish. But, what’s a Kuttlefish? Kuttlefish is an online marketplace and community designed to show that materials are worth something—even after they are thrown “away.” How wonderful, right? Repair and reuse should always come before recycling. If we have the opportunity to reuse parts to create new products, we should! So join us this Earth Day by sharing your most creative e-waste project. To help spark your creative genius, we’ve included a few of our favorite e-waste up cycles—a Bolivian WALL-E, a $60 3D Printer, and these 22 epic e-waste art masterpieces.
