CDs are starting to slowly go out of fashion. Now we can download a music directly on the phone or throw a movie that we would like to see on a flash drive, memory which is much greater than the memory of disk. If you have a few dozen CDs around the house, do not rush to throw them away, as they can be given a second life. Look what CD art&crafts your unwanted discs can be turned into. From one-of-a-kind Christmas ornaments to glamorous plates and clocks. There are creative ideas and ways to recycle that pile of your old CDs. But keep your head up – don’t cut CDRs, incredients are toxic.
