A new website, The Poor Porker shows New Yorkers how to turn trash into treasure when you’re on a tight budget.
There’s been a growing trend of environmentally friendly furniture and products that use recycled materials. However, these eco-friendly items could sometimes be very expensive and beyond the budget of the average consumer. Now, The Poor Porker hopes to share tips and instructions on how to enjoy a great lifestyle while being on a tight budget.
By using reclaimed materials, purchasing second-hand products, and combining them with some simple DIY tricks and craft skills, The Poor Porker demonstrate how upcycling can create trendy products while saving money and the environment. The blog is run by Robyn and Jarrid, and the posts are easy to follow and are accompanied by useful photos.
