Upcycle, recycle and reuse has become one of the key-point mantras of today. And it's no wonder. With the world's population at an all-time high and our landfills filling to capacity, society needs a new outlook on consumable products and the packaging that houses them.
By upcycling, recycling and reusing ordinary items, you help prevent more waste from filling these landfills and by reducing the use of new manufactured product by using these upcycled, recycled or reused ones it can also help reduce the consumption of new, raw materials to make more of new materials.
Using less new manufactured materials then, by result, can result in a reduction of energy usage, air pollution, water pollution and more since there's less demand from the factories that make those new products.
So, as you can see, the mantra is an excellent one. After all. Just think for a minute how -big- a landfill you would need if every person in the world threw away -one- magazine. Just one. It might be "just one" to you, but when piled up with everyone else's.... The repercussions are mind-boggling.
