Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

So, I’m guessing many of you have heard of the phrase “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”. If only, because of the fabulous song by Jack Johnson from the Curious George movie:

I remember to Reduce and to Recycle the most frequently, but I often forget to Reuse things.

However, we recently were able to Reuse construction waste and it totally made our days.

White Double Lap Vinyl Siding that was recently removed from a client's house during a remodeling project.

See that pile of siding in the picture above. We listed it for free on Craigslist and a lovely lady took the pile to use for her own project. Totally awesome! 1) We didn’t have to take the construction waste to the dump and 2) someone else got to complete their project at a lower cost. Huzzah!

We’re still feeling rather jazzed about it!
