Do you remember your grand-mother or great grand-mother? Did they throw out everything? Or, like Great Grannie who lived in a little town in cottage country, nothing was wasted. Of course she mended clothes; but, when those clothes were just too far gone, she made throw rugs, tapestries and other art which adorned her house. She was definitely not part of the throw away generation.
I was drawn to this topic as a result of watching the care and attention local indigenous people here in Ecuador give to recycling as a means of making a living. But, the topic has captivated my interest. And yours?
What did your granny or other family members do to not be wasteful ?
Tell us how your family recycled before it became the current "In thing" .
