The Sweet Waste Dyes Guide

A few years back Ulla Lapiolahti and I made a Finnish e-book about garbage colours – how to get dyes and colours out of your everyday biowaste, for example, like onion skins, coffee grounds etc. Now the 20-page e-book is out in English (with the help of Miia Huttunen and Frankie Robertson who did enormous proofreading job!)

In the guide we show you the secrets of garbage dyeing, give you instructions of how to make inks and printing pastes, carve some potatoes for printing purposes and pattern some paper – fun and ecological recycling in mind. The guide is made for everyone interested – but especially for teachers and group councelors. We are glad if our guide can be utilised in teaching or any group activities.

Our guide is made to be printed at home. It is shared with Creative Commons licence, which gives permission to share, copy and print it for non-commercial use. Download, share with your friends and have fun!

Download the booklet via SULOisia värejä – The Sweet Waste Dyes webpage – and share it with your friends too!
