Most people puts used papers, used ribbons, sponges, and other sorts of materials into the trash bin without thinking of recycling it into a piece of art and sell them. As for me, i see used papers such as old news papers, calendar sheets and all sorts of papers as cash by turning them into an embellishments, scrapbooking paper and more. Doing so helps not only your country by reducing garbage, but also helps you earn cash and encourages jobless people to do the right way of earning instead of turning into goons due to poverty and being jobless as well. So think before you trash a thing! Cheers!!

I agree with you, Hydra... we can actually benefit from those things we think of as trash. We can produce something from those things helping the jobless people be productive. Moreover, they can hone their skills in crafting too.

Yes indeed, as a matter of fact, im helping a small community here to make embellishments as a livelihood project. Now this is what i call earning while helping others. Thanks for your comment my friend! Have a nice day!!

Yes, i agree. However not many of us are that creative, able to create something out of nothing. What is deemed useless to us, might be treasure for others. Thus by throwing them away, we are doing a good deed as well, and it's up to their luck whether they find it or not. Furthermore, art is a weird topic where not many people knows how to appreciate it. As such, it's a waste of time trying to turn rubbish into sell-able things when one can simply throw them away.

We actually segregate even paper. I mean, we throw the used white bond paper separately from other types of paper. Cartons are also put in a separate bin. Junk dealers buy these stuff and they're priced differently, white paper being the most expensive :)
