Guest Post: Recyclable Material Usable in Home - Green Living 4 Live | Waste Management | Scoop.it

The past decade has seen a significant rise in the amount of people practicing reduce, reuse, recycle. With the help of scientists, celebrities, and caring people everywhere the green movement has truly begun to find the momentum it needs. People across the country, and the world, are finally recycling paper products, aluminum, glass, and cardboard as a matter of course. And yet, there’s more that can be done. We must continue to push the importance of green, making sure that we use recycled material wherever possible, and stay conscious of the need to reduce our carbon footprint.

One of the most overlooked ways to bring recycled material into the home is in the materials we use throughout the home, the very elements from which our house is crafted. Here are some materials you can use throughout the home that can greatly help keep your home and family green.
