I’ve noticed that for teens, especially athletes, plastic water bottles are used a lot. Probably even one 12 oz pastic water bottle trown out every day. Every single day. Coming from a school that’s very enviornmentally consience, many many students like to bring their own resuable water bottles- the best alternative to recycling or even reusing those plastic water bottles. My school has now set up these automatic water fountains made especially to fill up these water bottles. There’s no reason not to bring your own bottle. For the students, it’s free, it’s clean, it’s ecofriendly. Compared to the price of bottled water/ office jugs, it will most likely pay itself off. I strongly recommend this to any school or office that is looking to do even more than reuse and recycle. I couldn’t find the exact one that my school uses, but here’s a link to a similar one.

I think there is a better way - I reuse a large percentage of materials from my home in my work place and vice versa. Packing materials from boxes at my house are used to ship bicycles from work. However, I do believe in recycling. The bay area has one of the best recycling systems in the United States, and most of the paper I use at school is purchased via companies that receive their bulk goods from Alameda County. Is anybody in a similar situation?
We are living in a consumerist society, so we rarely think that the things that we no longer needed, others may be useful. But unnecessary items we can not only give away but also creative reuse them and give them a second living. There are a lot of beautiful ideas to reuse things. One of my favorite is decoupage. Decoupage is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects and so on. Decoupage is not just a way to reuse things but also very interesting activity. So I decided to show you one of my Decoupage on a jar. I hope you’ll like it.
Hello again! Used clothes isn’t necessary to throw away, as useless quest item. There is several ways to use it. For example, you could give away clothes to younger children. You could create an interesting and shocking robe for Halloween celebration.
Unused jars (can be of any material) are covered with newspapers, magazines, clippings. It can be really nice and original gift for a friend!
So good luck and turn up your imagination;)
