Recycling is something we are all doing, right?  Well here are some interesting insights on this first and most important green activity.

Did you know that the waste from construction is in the top ten of those things going into landfills?  Most of this is the waste from demolition of the old building or parts that aren’t being reused.  Here are some ideas on the items that can be recycled right on the job site! From the the site Greatpossibilities.com (http://www.greatpossibilities.com/blog/7-materials-that-can-be-recycled-at-your-construction-site-74.html) 7 Materials that can be recycled from your construction site.

Next we have an artist who is using recycled fallen leaves to make furniture.   Pretty chair don’t you think?

Lastly, they are turning banana trees into vegan leather wallets.   From Inhabitat.com (http://inhabitat.com/see-how-banana-trees-are-recycled-into-vegan-leather-wallets-in-micronesia/) green-banana-paper-wallets-2This last is currently a Kickstarter but I think it is a great idea and the wallets look pretty cool.

As always I thank you for your time and interest. Please take the time to Digg, Stumble Upon or add to the other social network of your choice to help me spread the word about these issues. Please forward any questions or suggestions to: askthefm@gmail.com
