One of the main benefits of all of this Repurposing, Reusing. Recycling, Reclaiming and Reinventing is that it reduces the amount of waste that is sent to overfilled landfills around the world. We all benefit when creative ideas emerge, turning waste into something useful. All those materials that have stayed out of the dump are helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from landfills, which in turn contribute to global climate change.
Some of the materials that can be turned into something else wonderful and useful are wood, metal cans, newspaper, yogurt jars, wine bottles, ladders, medicine bottles, plastic and paper bags, cardboard egg crates, an old tree fern and a globe.
