Creative Ideas for Reusing and Recycling Random Stuff

How Can I Recycle This This is by far one of the coolest and most useful sites I’ve found in a long time. There’s nothing like a functional website for the environmentally conscious, especially when you’ve got questions about how exactly some things should be recycled.

How can I recycle this?” is a website that is run by Louisa Parry and John Leach, who live together in Leeds in the United Kingdom. Their story begins with a bowl of pistachio nutshells, which stumped the pair as to what they might do with it, other than merely composting. That thought led them, naturally, to other things they had lying around the house – leftover items and empty containers – and exactly what they might do with those in the way of re-use and recycling.

Check out the site for loads of useful information, make a contribution or just visit regularly as they try to add new items every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

  1. Even better than recycling; Save money and the Earth and be clean at the same time! Get serious and add Bathroom Bidet Sprayers to all your bathrooms. Available at with these you won’t even need toilet paper any more, just a towel to dry off! It’s cheap and can be installed without a plumber; and runs off the same water line to your toilet. You’ll probably pay for it in a few months of toilet paper savings. And after using one of these you won’t know how you lasted all those years with wadded up handfuls of toilet paper. Now we’re talking green and helping the environment without any pain. As for water use a drought is always a concern and must be dealt with prudently but please remember that in the big picture the industrial water users always far exceed the water use of household users and in the case of toilet paper manufacture it is huge. The pollution and significant power use from that manufacturing process also contributes to global warming so switching to a hand bidet sprayer and lowering your toilet paper use is very green in multiple ways.
