My great great Uncle Ben's 44. Still serving its original purpose.
by Kathy Getto
Got some black gold compost cookin in the back yard.
Creative uses for old cassette tapes ..
Can a sense of humor be upcycled?
I repurpose money that other people lose or leave behind by donating that money to charity.
People today are still living off the table scraps of the '60s. They are still being passed around - the music and the ideas.
Speaking of purpose, why is there an additional sign in on the BIG L or little yellow and green people parts of this awad winning website? It might drive eyeballs over there like you want because you know who is "first".
I consider biosollids on the garden upcycling. Can't think of any other repurpose for BS that can be spoken about here.
The wife is also the dishwasher...
No kidding, Bruce Springsteen is a master of repurposing, every one of his songs sound the same to me.
anything fabric gets re-used over and over...garden ties, fabrics stripped into rugs/potholders/placemats...I re-use the buttons, make patches and embellishments of the pockets/cuffs/button plackets/collars. Also dis-assemble clothes and put parts fr different garments together.
Anything plastic and glass gets a good look for re-use: the clear ones for storage (I've learned if you can't see what's inside without removing the top, contents may be ignored until it's TOO late!)
Colored glass makes good yard art.
Wood and metal have multiple uses in the yard/garden/shop.
Basically we only put out our new 30 gal trashbin every couple of weeks as most stuff goes to the recycling center (Defenbaugh bins at New York or Central, the big purple bin at the liquor store), the compost bin or is repurposed. We set out usable stuff on the curb after the trash gets picked up and it always disappears within 24 hours...good neighborhood freecycling.stuff moves fr one house to another).
My pleasure, prospector. I just upcycled some of my holiday blubber into a 3 & 1/2 mile walk with the doggie. Working it off one sugar cookie at a time. Next year I'm stickin' with the growlers. A beer belly beats a sweet tooth every time.
Again, thanks for that shout out rockchalker52
Free State Growlers have a purpose.
I am reticent to upcycle the LJW.
I hear that Sea World has been know to reporpoise.
When I drive the vette I recycle tire rubber into road surface.

Upcycle is a silly term to make things made out of toilet paper tubes sound fancy. Or to make folks spending hours on pintrest feel self important. Congratulations....you are saving the planet one toilet paper tube and glitter project at a time.
Huh?................ who gives a flip
I have an old tar barrel I repurposed to a burn barrel. WHEW! Shoulda seen the smoke from that one the first time I fired it!
I have a bin in the basement that I throw any clean cardboard containers likeempty Kleenex boxes or empty cracker boxes etc., used copy papers, junk mail, some paper bags etc to use to start fires---vs. throwing them in the trash......anything paper that's not got anything that would draw bugs like food or grease.
I learned something interesting about regular recycling -- specifically paper recycling. A lot of recycle paper is shipped to China to make recycled paper products to compete against American paper manufacturing. Actually there were a lot of interesting details about the decline of the paper industry specifically in Wisconsin in this in depth story:
More and more these days, the comments here get downcycled into oblivion.
Grammaddy, It is too bad that management doesn't get it. You are screwed if you can't laugh at yourself.
I line the birdcage with the LJW.
I've reused a couple of CD package tops. I turn them over and put small items in the short one and pens/pencils in the tall one. I've also reused the empty paper cases I've bought. They used to hold new reems of paper, and now they hold used paper that I'm too lazy to file. I keep my stray nuts and bolts in an old spice jar.
I figured that Roe and Autie have turned several old vehicles into yard-art.
Ditto, autie, on the coffee containers. We have a couple of em full of bacon grease. They're in the freezer & the contents are used for the birdie's suet cakes. There's also a bunch of junk in the barnette. I want to make some yard art out of it, but the more likely outcome is Sanford & Son redux.
I missed out on this R_I bizness. Gone, eh? That's a revoltin' development.
"Questionon the street" or whatever they call it is always good for a laugh first thing in the morning. Thanks for putting a smile on my Monday Autie and Eddie!
The plastic three pounds of coffee containers. We use them for many things. The used butter tubs are the new tupperware. I'm thinking on how to upcycle Ronaldo now. He always needs a purpose...or repurpose whatever the case may be. Such a narrow view was never the rule of the day when Whitley was riding herd.
My pewter beer mug from the Stables has long served me as a pocket change receptacle.

That implies a better use than original. Wouldn't that make its first use rather disappointing?
The kiddo played in the giant box that a multi-hundred dollar gift came in. I guess turning a box into a toy would be upcycling.
“The big Planters peanuts containers, I use them for holding nuts and bolts. ”
Didn't Planters use them to hold nuts first?
No, but Dick Chaney said we used enhanced interrogation techniques, meaning KSM drank 85,000 gallons of water. WTH do upcycled and repurposed mean? Does anybody speak English anymore? Do you mean used? I could sure use a repurposed car right now. There was a lot of nondiscretionary fragrance at the library today. Not just BO, patchouli too. I'd have to ask Bea and RI, but they aren't here. And here I am, a Scottish-American employment-challenged caucasian male with a foul mouth and a dirty mind. Is this the meaning of life? Somebody must be punking me.
