There is an offshoot of the recycling philosophy that you might be using and not even know it. This is “upcycling” which basically means repurposing a disposable item. With true recycling items like paper, plastic or aluminum are grinded down into pulp and then mixed into a slurry the reconstitutes them as raw material to be used again. Upcycling is repurposing without the grinding.
A prime example is any glass jar with a lid that you wash out and use for the storage of things like buttons, screws or nails. An old tire that is turned into a planter for the garden is another good upcycling trick. You can upcycle copy paper by flipping it over and printing on the blank side. These are all very prudent and practical examples of this practice but there are some things that simply won’t fit like you old backyard barbeque grill. After many summer seasons of grilling that probably barbeque is ready to be replaced but what can you do with the old one? Tuck it behind the garage and hope no one will notice?
