Recycling Tip 9-28

Posted on 29 September, 2011 at 20:49 Comments comments (2)
Recycling tips 1: Start small
To make a difference, you don’t have to start big. Remember, every effort counts, small or big.
A small start is better than not at all, and it can help give you greater confidence to take bigger steps down the road.
What it means to start small is to start with yourself.
Look at the things that you own and use. Things around you that you have control over. These things could be in your home, in your workplace, at your hotel room during your holidays, in your car, etc.
And as you become comfortable recycling your own things, you can expand your sphere of influence to those around you, such as your immediate family, and then your relatives and friends.

Recycle...Reuse!

Posted on 25 September, 2011 at 21:06 Comments comments (1)
Since this is the first post in regards to recycling...I would like to say that I do my best to recycle and reuse.  In our home we do not purchase new furniture or appliances.  We shop at thrift stores for most of our items we need.  I would like to begin sharing my ideas as well as others regarding recycling and reusing.  I would also like to hear others ideas on recycling and reusing. 

As you see from our website, we recycle album covers into fashionable Muzikal Totes™.  Quite honestly our profit margin on these items are not that great, it's just our little way of helping the earth survive.  As we go we hope to add more recycled fashion items also.

In searching the web I found a really cool site that you might want to check out...it's called www.recyclart.org.  It has a lot of cool items on it and may inspire you to find a way to recycle and reuse!

I look forward to hearing others ideas on recycling!
