Repurposing is recycling

Posted by Steve Kleber on Nov 12, 2010

Welcome to the Kleber & Associates blog!  Repurposing is recycling.  Here’s the latest.


 

 

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?
