7.5 Lbs of Paper Going Directly Into The Recycling Bin- Are You Kidding Me Restoration Hardware?

Someone I share a house with and may or may not be related to through marriage submits this-

An absolute waste – 7.5lbs of catalogs from restoration hardware came in the mail in one wrapped up package that I dumped directly into the recycling bin…
I would be embarrassed if I worked for RH

Upcycled Chairs

Friends Polly Hickey and Cheryl Davis have come up with a great idea – finding cast-off chairs on the side of the road, cleaning them up, and selling them at a reasonable price at the Farmer’s Market here in Gloucester on Thursdays. Their business, Upcycled Chairs, has already gained popularity at the Market. Several have been sold. Instead of being discarded in the trash, these chairs will have a new life. Very cool!

Wreath made from rope found at Folly Cove From Mary Bowles

Mary Bowles writes-

Hi Joey,

I was at Folly Cove a couple of weeks ago with my niece and nephew (Lily & Stevie) and we picked up a bunch of the pieces of colorful rope that wash up along the shore there.  I bought a wreath frame and today we used the blue and orange rope to make a wreath.  I took this picture of them holding the finished product at Long Beach.  They were really excited to make something out of stuff they found!

Recycling. Hard Copy Yellow Pages Has No Place In The World Of 2012

Driving home I see the plastic bags of yellow pages strewn in front of houses up and down the street.  I pull in the driveway, grab the white plastic bag containing one of the two or three different versions of the yellow pages we will receive this year and promptly drop it into our recycling bin.

In this day of smartphones and computers is there really any need to chew up the lumber for the paper, ink or transportation costs to produce this thing?

I wonder how many of our readership keeps these things kicking around still or how many of you put it straight into the recycling bin?

Mark Ring offers his perspective on the yellow pages and community phonebooks-

Mark says that they breed like rabbits.  You put one on the coffee table and a month later there’s a stack of 5.  The odds that you’ll find what you are looking for in the big Boston Metro yellow pages are one in a gazilion.   I have yet to ever had any success drilling down for the listing I was looking for in the big Metro yellow pages.  The problem seems to be how they have things categorized in the big Boston Metro Yellow Pages.  Chances are the listing you are looking for is in there but it’s completely mis-categorized.  For example you could be looking for a mattress store and it will be listed under scarves.

The community phone book on the other hand will have every local number listed except for the one you are inevitably looking for.  Never fails.  Ever.

I’m done.  Straight to the recycling bin.
