Instead of throwing everything in the bin, she gives the trash a new lease of life by upcycling and recycling it. Right from cereal boxes and cardboard cartons to iron boxes and furniture, she makes the best out of waste. "Initially, I used to paint, but about six years ago I began crafting and this did wonders to me, as an individual, and for the environment. The amount of waste I ...
