Tiffany Threadgould #ALD16 @findingada


You might recognize Tiffany from television, in her role as Chief Design Junkie at TerraCycle on Pivot TV’s ‘Human Resources‘ – also, that’s not just her title on t.v., that’s her actual job title at TerraCycle! She’s an upcycler extraordinaire, a crafter to the max-ter, and author of the book ‘ReMake It!: Recycling Projects from the Stuff You Usually Scrap.’ I’ve not once seen Tiffany where she wasn’t wearing something upcycled from stuff otherwise regarded as garbage, let alone busy keeping and compiling junk into super-organized storage methods for upcycling at a later date – and most importantly sharing her techniques and showing others how to expand their creativity through re-make expression!



I’m an eco-lifestyle expert who spreads do-it-yourself recycling goodness with simple solutions.
I currently hold the title of Chief Design Junkie at the mega recycling company TerraCycle.

My upcycling career began with an MFA in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute where I developed my thesis Trash Nouveau – Reincarnating Garbage Into Usable Objects. My book ReMake It! (Sterling Publishing), is filled with nearly 100 do-it-yourself projects for turning trash into new. My series of recycling kits are under the ReMake It name, too. Woo woo!

If you’re looking for me on TV, you can catch me and my TerraCycle friends on the TV series Human Resources over at the Pivot Network. I’m also one of four competing designers on the show Trashformers on FYI TV, and my friend Kat and I take on my kitchen makeover in a recent episode of Renovation Realities at DIY Network.

October 11th is Ada Lovelace Day! Today the world celebrates all of the accomplishments of women in science, art, design, technology, engineering, and math. Each year, Adafruit highlights a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard. Today we will be sharing the stories of women that we think are modern day “Adas” alongside historical women that have made impacts in science and math.

Please promote and share #ALD16 with your friends and family so we can promote and share with all of the world wide web!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
