Tips to Reduce - Re-use - Recycle

Did you ever think to re-use some of the packaging that is included with products you buy? I opened my "junk drawer" this morning and saw that several of the containers used to house my thumbtacks, rubber bands, birthday candles, etc were all organized in sectioned trays that came from bead kits my daughters were given over the years. The beads had been used, so I gave the trays a new purpose in my kitchen. Yes, you can buy cheap ones at the Dollar Store or Walmart, but there is nothing cheaper than free & some of these plastics may not even be recyclable in Wisconsin, so I've saved them from a landfill for a little longer. 

There are so many ways we can contribute to the rescue of Mother Earth. Whether they are small acts of recycling, or huge acts of reducing, it's important that we all do what we can to help keep our planet in balance for our future generations.

You can use most packing peanuts in plant pots to help lighten them and promote drainage. Just don't use the kind which melt. For the kind that melt, save them for someone who has a male child ready to be potty trained. It's great aiming practice.

I love broken mirrors... During our remodel I took several large mirrors and broke them down (literally) and created mosaics on our fence. One piece even looked like a snail so I saved it and put it in a special place in the garden... Gosh there are just so many ways to reuse!!!! (create an art project out of old tile... tie an old worn (and hopefully colorful) scarf to a tree branch on your property, so many things... so little time... ;)
