When I was young we had no idea what recycling even was. You put your trash out, the city or town collected it and it all went to the dump. As a girl I remember seeing the seagulls from the reasonably close ocean enjoying the horrible mess. Over time, however, recycling developed and became popular. We should do it as it is saving the planet. Many companies utilize the materials and remanufacture the items into useable products again. This includes paper, bags, cardboard, shipping materials and more. One of the latest trends is the three dimensional homes many of which are now developed through 3-D printers utilizing recyclable materials. They look fabulous not to mention they are not cutting down trees, making cement, and tossing saw mill wastes. They are using encapsulated wood wastes from local sawmills in a bio resin to create a durable printing material. It is brilliant. This should reduce the cost of housing in the areas that have forests. Building homes is quite costly including all the permits for materials, zoning, etc. Yet with a recycled home you are able to create a nice place to live while helping the environment at the same time. Who knows these homes may be the new wave and sell around the globe! In the Good Gus series the homes were the old fashioned stick builds. They utilized everything so little was wasted. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones. Hard copies, personally autographed, are available through our website www.goodgusbooks.com along with past blogs for your reading enjoyment. Digitizing for all the books are available now! Books one and two are now available on the Tractor Supply website. “Misplaced Trust” will be available this month.
