Chicago company Rebuilding Exchange (RX) has taken 7,000 tons (6,300 tonnes) of timber waste over the past four years and converted it into beautiful pieces of furniture.
The business is now looking to expand, and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise capital. The campaign runs through until 13 December.
Yet another way of taking the prolific building waste stream and making valuable products from it.
