“For all the old items, which are no longer in use, throwing away is never a wise way. There are lots of ideas for reusing old belts into useful, stylish, handmade goods or interesting home decorations, rather than throwing them away.”
The #Recycling Association named Pringles tubes and Lucozade Sport bottles in a list of products that pose the biggest challenges for #reuse. The greater the number of materials used in #packaging, the harder it is for recycling machines to separate them. Head to read the article: http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-39953209
Scrap tyres are, sadly, a serious hindrance to the welfare of our environment and to our health. It has become a far too common sight to witness towering piles of flaming, disused tyres that are a complete eyesore and emanate a horrendous odour. What makes this dumping of old tyres even more galling is that they can very easily be repurposed into items of practical value around your home, such as flowerbeds, swings and dog beds.
Zero waste doesn’t mean producing or consuming nothing. It’s about carefully and intentionally designing, producing, and consuming without waste as an end product.
“We make less waste and eventually when we can shift the way manufactures design and create stuff (and we have the infrastructure to recover) then we will live in a circular economy (zero waste) and that word zero will actually mean zero. Until then, do your best, start small, and voice your consumer opinion! Change won’t happen until we speak up and use our consumer power as much as we can.”
You’ve heard of people recycling everything from cardboard boxes to old papers and clothes. Recycling is an important process to be discussed if we are serious about making our planet green and pollution free.
This infographic revolves around some of the creative tips you can follow to reduce the amount of stuff you throw away. Start reusing and recycling everything in life and reduce your carbon footprints.
Upcycling, or Creative reuse, is the process of taking materials or products that are no longer wanted or needed and through creativity, transforming them into works of art, items of home decoration, or something else useful. It’s seen a resurgence in recent years, with repurposing becoming more popular as we become more aware of the limit of our resources and the impact we have on the earth as a species.
With sites like Pinterest, you can now get plenty of ideas for upcycling your unwanted items. The Rug Seller decided to take a look into what old rugs could be creatively turned into. It was quite surprising how many options there were, but in this infographic we dig into just a few. We’ll show you how to turn your rug in an accessory for your favourite outfit, how to make it into something to keep your cat occupied and how to revamp it for more use as a rug.
If you’re looking to repurpose one of your old rugs, or even something else in your home, we hope this will give you some inspiration to get creative and try something new. What have you got to lose?
