Upcycle your old T-shirts
Join the revolution to reduce your carbon footprint. There are so many ways to upcycle your old clothing. Ms Moroneys' First Year Art class took this initiative in order to prove this was possible. In fact, it is also a great way to be creative while having fun at the same time. So think twice before throwing away your old T-shirts!
