Repurposing Old Curtains – Talking Trash with Junk Run Episode 5

Bag made from old curtains

Welcome to Talking Trash with Junk Run Episode 5 where we show you what can happen with old and second-hand curtains in Auckland. In this episode we visit Habitat for Humanity in South Auckland and meet Courtney and her wonderful volunteers who show us some great innovative ways to give old curtains a second life. We see how they are checked, repaired and lined and what happens to them next. We also see ways they use every part of the fabric to keep as much as possible out of landfill. Courtney also shows us how donated rolls of fabric are put to good use – even for making shopping and vegetable bags! You will see that your old curtains can be reused for needy families in South Auckland instead of being dumped into landfill.
