Kabad the Kamal: DIY tricks to create art from waste

“Kabad ka Kamal” or in other words “Best Out Of Waste” is one form of art that produces useful and beautiful items from waste materials thus also contributing to conserving the environment.

For a second, consider what you're throwing away before you toss it as it may take the form of something beautiful. Upcycling is defined as the process of transforming waste products and waste materials into new parts or goods of higher quality or greater ecological significance. Furthermore, it is not only for people who enjoy arts and crafts, but for everyone, as all of these ideas are worth trying.
