Recycling

When was the last time you threw an empty glass pickle jar into the trash? How many empty glass olive jars have you tossed into the trash? Have you ever stuck an old window or door out by the curb hoping the trash collector would haul it away? We’re probably all guilty of doing these things at least a few times. We know it’s best to recycle … yet … we get busy or lazy and take the easy way out.

Though, recycling actually comes natural. Kids do it all the time. I remember one time when I was about nine years old spending a few hours in the garage tearing apart old broken toys in order to build a car of sorts. My friend and I pushed each other around in it for a little while … however … the best part of the day was when we were figuring out how to use what we had to create something of “value”. Yes, I did that.

More recently, I’ve started saving pickle and olive jars to use in place of expensive containers I would normally buy at the store.

The attached picture represents something I would love to see in my backyard or even in a neighbor’s yard where I could see and enjoy it. It’s made from old windows.

So, if you have any old windows in your garage or basement … perhaps you can spend a fun day with a friend or your spouse … figuring out how to create this work of usable art.

Happy recycling. So, if you have any old windows in your garage or basement … perhaps you can spend a fun day with a friend or your spouse … figuring out how to create this work of usable art. - See more at: http://www.b1057.com/blogs/ann/blogentry.aspx?BlogEntryID=10528683#sthas...
