Upcycle -Diy Cellphone Holder.

For this project Instead of throwing away an old pair of jeans I cut out the back pocket and made it into a cell phone holder specifically for when I charge my phone.Using the three r's:

Reduce-to make smaller or less amount.For instance,wasting less water than usual.

Reuse-use again.Finding a way to reuse things like using your cleaning supply containers to store grocery bags.

Recycle-recycling all plastic water bottles,soda cans,paper etc.These are later processed into something new and reusable.

UPCYCLE is not included in the three rs but is just as important because it basically includes using two or more of the three rs.

Upcycling and Recycling are different because upcycling is reusing something and making something new out of it.Recycling something allows it to go through a process in order for it to be a reusable substance again.
