In the current economic climate, most of us are looking to save a dime here and there and fortunately for the entire planet, it has fueled the “green” revolution and encouraged us to think outside the box and reuse, repurpose and recycle.
What better way to reduce your “carbon footprint” than to purpose used or vintage items, as they were originally meant to be used or to recycle them for a completely new purpose.
reuse • repurpose • recycle
Of course, “going green” is not a new idea to any of us, but as these terms are being bandied about, I wondered what their actual definitions were and how they varied, if at all.
Yes, here I am again, trying to “define” something else. What can I say, I like organization. It is the graphic artist in me.
According to Wikipedia, that constant online source that everyone says is not reliable:
2. To reuse as a whole.
1. to convert waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.
1. The act of salvaging or in some manner returning a discarded item into something usable.
So, the jist of it is, they all pretty much can and are used interchangeably.
