I love these sites where people challenge themselves to do a project every day for a month, or a year, or whatever. I think that, being under this kind of pressure, with lots to produce, frees you up, in a weird way, to get really creative, to think outside the box.

Here, University of Applied Arts (Vienna, Austria) students Magdalena Akantisz and Lisa Schultz are doing 30 upcycling projects in 30 days in pursuit of their upcycling diplomas. Their goal is to show people lots of fun, cool, creative things you can make from recycled materials and they want to inspire others to do the same. In fact, they’re looking for guest contributors and hope to make this site expand to 365 things every 365 days.
