Working and living with recycling
and eco-friendly products often brings with it some surprises and it never
ceases to amaze me the resourcefulness of some people when it comes to
reclaiming recycled material for manufacture of new products.
We have got so used to many of our
household items being manufactured from that twentieth century ‘miracle
material’ plastic, that we often don’t realise how much of this
non-biodegradable material is still around. And now many of us are trying to
move away from plastics, the alternatives are coming from some wonderful
We are used to seeing recycled
plastics and paper, and its no wonder as there is such an abundance of it. But
there is an abundance of other materials too and making use of those is proving
a great challenge.
Car tyres have for decades been an
environmental problem. Many tyres are remoulded but there is a limit to how
many remoulded tyres people will buy and as a consequence there is a huge glut
of tyres up and down the country.
There are many eco-friendly
manufacturers that are attempting to make use of this unwanted rubber with some
interesting an innovative results, the hardback notebook made from recycled car
tyres is my particular favourite.
Other items that are environmental
hazards are also being used in the manufacture of some fantastic products.
Those little plastic cups that contain awful tasting coffee from machines, may
be useful for a quick cuppa at work or in a public building but they don’t
biodegrade and accumulate in landfills all over the globe.
A clock made from recycled plastic
cups is a great example of what can be done with these little plastic cups.

Recycling has become all the rage
these days. Some people like to venture into recycle as a means of making their
home a little more “green.” Others may do so as a means of saving
money. Others just do it for really no reason other than they know it is the
right thing to do. The key here is that recycled products have a great many
benefits associated with them. For those wondering what type of recycled
products would greatly benefit one’s home, here is a look at the top five
recycled products any and all homes would benefit from:
Glassware: Okay, some people might

have not been recycled – including plates and plates!
Glass products: Glass is usually

homes with more frequency. Why not add recycled drinking glasses and bottles to
