    Love the content of your site!
    Awesome work!
    I’m a carpenter and I’ve just started a crate manufacturing business in Australia. It’s going pretty well. Would love to point people to your site for inspiration if that’s ok with you?
    Do you think you could put a link on your site for me?
    I’m trying to gather some more sites like yours for my site so if you have any recommendations please let me know. Keep up the good work!


    Absolutely none of this is recycling. While creative, it is merely reusing (or repurposing, if you like), but it is not recycling. Recycling is extracting the raw materials out of something like an aluminum can for instance. Reusing is good because you are not using more raw materials to produce something but it is nit returning the materials back into resources that can be used in something completely new.

    Don’t be a negative Nancy, Billy. :)

    Dictionary definition of “recycle” (Particularly definitions 2 and 3)
