Repurposing is recycling
Posted by Steve Kleber on Nov 12, 2010
Inspired by all things green, I keep coming across more innovative repurposing ideas for the home. (Check out a recent post about giving new meaning to home décor.) To repurpose is to use an item for which it was not originally intended. I’m not talking cardboard and paper scraps, I mean wine glasses as lights, books used as bookshelves and even a suitcase for a pet bed. The idea behind recycling and repurposing is simple…to create less waste.
When an item that you love has served its purpose, why not give it a new one? What are some items in your home or office that you have repurposed?
