This video caught my attention because I’m interested in reusing old materials. My focus for this summer is going to be “Making it work with what you have”. I’ve been interested in reusing old barn wood for new projects. I have an old barn in my back yard, I just need to find a project! The old wood just has so much character to it. the tree it was made from grew here in the civil war and maybe earlier. It may take more work to use, but I think we all need to realize that being sustainable is going to take a little bit more work.
This is a video from The Journey. A non-funded documentary project that travels around by bike and shoots little videos about sustainable local environmental projects. I think it’s really exciting that some people aren’t out screaming about how bad the world has gotten, they just decided that if something is going to change then we’re going to have to do it ourselves.
