Prescriptions for Survival & Prosperity In A Post-Economic Meltdown Britain

These pages are a work-in-progress. Expect more to come reasonably frequently

Let’s cut straight to the chase – this page and its’ siblings are about recycling. No, not simply separating out your rubbish into 2 (or more) different bins for collection, but actively re-using/modifying your would-be trash to create something useful. I’m not going to discuss rules – they have no place here, but I have a few suggestions:

  • Make some space available in your house/garage/garden shed, to store ‘collectables’.
  • Collectables are anything that you consider re-usable. One of my tests is if when I’m about to discard an item, and think: ‘What a shame to throw this out’.
  • Favourite collectables of mine are containers which are replenished (free) on a regular basis. Even if you have no immediate use, put them in your collectables store.

There are other websites for metal bashers and the like – such as the instructables site, but these don’t have a close focus on re-use.

Well that’s enough introduction for now. We all learn better and quicker through doing, so go for it. Choose a project from the menu below:
