Ross MacMillan sees treasure where others might see trash. His store in Vancouver’s Gastown displays some of his clever uses for what others might simply see as industry’s castoffs. When you buy, for example, a coffee table from Industrial Artifacts (http://www.industrialartifacts.com/), you can take home a piece of industrial history, own a unique, one of a kind conversation piece, and have a great place to set your drink. You can even have a hand in
the design of your furniture when you visit the warehouse, where most of the castoffs are kept. Much of the recycled material consists of handcrafted, antique, wooden originals from the sand casting process. But, MacMillan also has a stash of traffic light lenses from when the city switched to LED
technology. MacMillan makes a wide range of items from bowls, decorative boxes and light fixtures, to room dividers, chairs, and desks.

If the economics don’t work, recycling efforts won’t either.
As our little contribution to make this economics of recycling more appealing,http://LivePaths.com blogs about people and companies that make money selling recycled or reused items, provide green services or help us reduce our dependency on non renewable resources.
PS How can we trade links back to our blogs?

Nice blog! Glad I found you. Check out my site as well, Green Talk. A couple of years ago I built my house using alot of green materials. My intent was to create a nontoxic environmnet for my children. I started the blog to help others to turn green based upon my own experiences. If I can do it, so can you or at least give it a try. The posts are about green building products, gardening, and a mix bags of everything in between. I am always on the look out for green building and home products, so anyone knows something neat, happy to post it for you and give you the credit. Plus, I love comments so please post whether you are a novice or been around the green block. It is the conversation that is important. anna http://www.green-talk.com

Thank you, Keetsa. I love your blog. I have learned so much. I have always loved using and supporting earth friendly products, but I have just recently had the opportunity to be a more direct part of the movement. I have opened my own business selling organic / fair trade tea, herbs, recycled glassware, all natural soy candles, beeswax candles, and other earth friendly goods. I’m always looking to expand my knowledge and products. My customers have also be learning and enjoying the process.
Here is my site:
Sorry, typed site wrong…
There is this artist in South Dakota who is taking metal & recyling them into true FINE ART, not just junk art. He is showing that recycling materials for art doesn’t have to be cheesey! Two of his recycled pieces is currently in a show in Manhattan and I saw his work in the Black Hills in South Dakota, at the Sculpture in the Hills show the last weekend of June. The stuff was unique & beautiful too. He uses everything from car body metal to heavy iron, and also incorporates found objects like round rocks, plastic spheres from christmas ornaments or those old discarded glass reflection spheres that are used in gardens! His webpage I listed above. But I will put it here too. http://www.angelfire.com/sd/SculptorEW
It would be nice to see more artists utilizing techniques like this. I also like the fact he doesn’t use harsh chemicals to give his work the funky finishes many people want in this instant gratification society. Instead he uses environmentally friendly finishes like beeswax, oils from his skin and simply the effects of the sun & rain.
Very cool for those wanting to have sculptures that are eco-friendly.
