Halloween recycle

My daughters and I, we have a halloween tradition. We paint and decorate glass yards that we collect from
the whole year.

We use them as halloween decorations with the traditional pumpkins.  Just add a candle.
Take a look to my pictures.

Recycle Rubber Tires

Rubber tires material is one of the most interesting materials to recycle.

Portable Speed Bumps and Speed humps

Firstable I think it is a great idea to have portable speeds bumps, I want one of those to put in front of my home!!!  but also is great that they are made from recycle rubber tires.

I found this company trafficlogix located in New York that build portable speeds bumps and speed humps from rubber tires.

Keep doing the good job.

Rubber Mulch

Last month the HOA in my community decided to reeplace the wood chips from the community park's playground for rubber mulch. We really celebarte the change;  It is safer and more fun.

What a great idea and it is made from recycle rubber tires!!!

Rubber mulch is aslo used for landscaping decoration and equestrian Arena. How cool is that!!!

Here is the link of one of the companies that sell Rubber Munch in California:

How to start a recycling program?

To start a recycling program there are a lor of resources, specially in the web.

I decided to start a recycling program myself in my work place and I began to search for any ideas and resources.

In some states like California you actually get some cash for you empty cans and bottles, It is a nice way to get extra cash and at the same time helps the earth.

By clicking on this link: recycle bottles and cans I ordered a new recycle kit to start.

I ordered my recycling started kit and in about 2 weeks I got by the mail a very nice box to collect the cans and bottles.

 I probably will use the cash that I get to buy some water or candies for the people in the office.

I love my new recycle box!!! . This program is soo easy to start and it is Free!!! you can do it in the gym, in the school, in church... Get everybody involve.
