Four of my husbands ties have bit the dust. There are crafters that refashion ties into skirts and other arty creations, and I recently saw a woven-tie chair seat replacing a worn out wicker. A quick google of "repurposing neck ties" brought a cool solution: Ties With A Purpose. They employ homeless, low-income people and create beautiful pillows, bags, even hats. And they reuse every part of the ties, even the linings. Fabulous win-win-win!
They will help you throw a Toss Your TIe party!

100 Under $100: One Hundred Tools for Empowering Global Women
I haven't been writing lately here at Money Changes Things -I am researching and writing a book on low tech, high impact tools and tech for women in the developing world.
I have posted many exciting innovations on Pinterest, and subdivided them by sector.
My book is aimed at integrating the women's empowerment and humanitarian tech sectors, showing how low cost, high impact technologies and practices can help women improve their lives, lifting themselves and their families out of extreme poverty. You can follow my book blog: 100 Under $100
