Recycling is not about you,
its for you.
What the idea behind recycling, upcycling or repurposing?
This has many answers and will vary from person to person but here are a few reasons.
- Preserve limited resources
- Save Money
- Reduce Landfill
- Save Energy
- Reduce our impact on the planet and animals
- Enjoyment from creating something new
- It can be free
Its not always practical or safe to save every thing but a vast amount of items can be.
This site is intended to create a resource of how to recycle and also put into touch people
that produce recycled items for sale with potential buyers. Not everyone has the time to do this
but here they are given the opportunity to support the cause.
I don't pretend to be super green or intelligent but I do what I can as walk begins with the first step, this is mine, what will yours be? and what will the other 7 billion people on this planets first step be?
These challenges are optional but we encourage people to create these items and send in your photographs so we can display your work and encourage others.
