Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. But. Sometimes You Just Have to Refuse.

I'm all for reducing, reusing and recycling. It's a wonderful concept that has taken far too long to catch on. Now it's all the rage and sometimes people just HAVE to learn to let go. Something just aren't meant to be reused. (I've got you a lit-tle scared now, don't I?) (Well, you should be. For the people that are buying this stuff.) Behold! Reborn Rubbish!

Reborn Rubbish pins and magnets are playful little guys happy to have been rescued from garbage cans & landfills. Reborn Rubbish dolls are similar, but too big to wear. They can, however, hang out in your house, demonstrating your exquisite taste as well as your concern for the environment.

So in conclusion, grab stuff from your local dump and hang it outside your house, on your fridge and wherever you see fit. People will either believe you're eccentric or quite the opposite. It's anyone's guess really.

Look! Friends!

I am concerned because how far do you have to root through a trash can or a landfill to find these items? It's not like it's a refridgerator or something that could be, you know, on the surface. This is stuff that you have to DIG for. The clean freak part of me is concerned about the sweaty hairy dirty arm of which those bands were once adorning. As well as um... WTF got on it between the time it was thrown out and the time it was retrieved. There just aren't enough cleaners in the world to make me comfortable with this. I need to shower. (Not that having a shower has anything to do with this post, just reminds me that I might be stinky.) (Just sayin') { source }

    Um, I’ll go with refuse on this one. Not that it isn’t creative and all but I think I second the need for a shower after thinking about where these things came from.

    Since I mostly make bath and body items, I usually must refuse for the sake of cleanliness and freedom from backteria and other microbes.

    Ever had cellulitis? I have–from a nurse who screwed up an IV stick in ER once. I still have a scar from the entrance point, one’s that’s had me asked if I’m a JUNKIE?

    ME? A freaking JUNKIE? I don’t freaking think so.

    However, I could recycle candle jars, fill them with nice, eco-friendly soy wax and make new cool candles. The problem is that most of the people I know put their glass in recycling and I can’t get any to reuse. If I can get a few to give me their glassware I’d start in with a new green line. It’d be fun.

    I just need to train the glass-users to save them for me–a tough job so far.
