Reinvent: Keep old telephone books handy and tear out the pages as you need to use as stuffing for when you mail things in boxes. Cheaper than buying expensive bubble wrap and moving craft paper. You can also use these to clean windows. Uses less space to store the book than collecting and stacking newspapers, too. Reuse: foam peanuts to pack boxes or for safe storage. Recycle: Outdated computers that still work can be donated to charity organizations to assist the less fortunate in learning those skills. Defunct ones can be donated to technical/vocational schools that offer computer repair courses and be used for parts. Repurpose: Dont throw away worn out bath towels, linens and blankets. Wash them and donate to local vets and animal shelters for use in the kennels and stables for sick animals to be kept warm. Give us your ideas!!! Keep the earth green!
