What else would you add to my repurposing list?
I’m highly keen on reusing and re-purposing all material which I have the possibility to do so with.
Instead of recycling, because there is no recycling service in my area, I designate all paper waste to be applied as fire-starter; all plastic waste i collect in place to eventually melt it to make a cover for my compost pile and any other water proof surfacing; bones from meat get crushed for the dogs & cats, or fashioned into (decorative) tool; wood scraps & sawdust to the rabbit and in the chicken coop; and so on.
I clean, save and store everything, from metal scraps to tetrapack cartons, awaiting a moment of ‘eureka’ to find out how I can integrate them into the household’s needs.
Of course my practice extends only to the limits of my imagination and skill. But even these are boundaries I want to expand.
Anything else I might do with the materials I mentioned and/or any other (domestic waste) material you have in mind)
Please share, as I am eager to apply myself to this.
Perhaps we can inspire each other to divulge such a way of life. ;-)
