Greenwala, the online green social network, recently posted an article asking creative crafters to share details on any repurposed fashion items that you've created:

Well, if anyone out there has a project that they're particularly proud of, please e-mail me via Greenwala with a brief description of your creation (along with a photo of it if available) and I'll feature it along with many other community creations in an upcoming DIY Fashion post.


I also want to let everyone know that Greenwala is running quite a few fun green themed contests, but one in particular sounds especially cool.

Hewlett Packard (HP) is sponsoring a "Choose To Re-Use" contest.

All you need to do is just upload a photo of the most creative reuse of something you would have otherwise trashed. The most unique one could win a new HP 110 XP Notebook and a Deskjet D2660 printer!

Just sign up on (fast, free, and a tree will be planted in your honor via the non-profit group "Trees For The Future").

Then, use this link to enter the contest:

Click the "Submit Entry" tab and upload a photo of something that you transformed into a new and innovative way!

I think that it's a fun contest and it's also for a great cause -- good luck!
