Don’t forget about Reuse?

Above: a six-pack resued as a condiment carrier.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.  We’ve all heard it, but what does it really mean.  If you’re like most people you’ll toss your empty can and bottles in the recycling bin, and try to use less paper plates.  However we always seem to forget about Reuse.  Like instead of tossing an old T-shirt that is stained, you could make it into a grocery shopping bag (See the first link below).   There are a lot of fun and creative ways to resuse items, just check out the links below.  And next time you go to throw something out, because it’s old, ruined, served it’s purpose, or no longer needed, try to be creative and think of a way that you or someone else can reuse it.  I’ve included some links with pictures and ideas of ways you can reuse objects.  Enjoy, and be creative!  Let us know if you try any of the ideas below, and how they worked for you.
