One of the major concerns in conservation is the use of plastic bags. Plastic bags are given away too freely by many stores. The amount of waste is alarming as we are reaching tons of waste each year! Plastic waste is polluting the environment and we need to address it now.

There are several things being done to bring plastic recycling to the forefront where these plastic bags are concerned. Companies have started to take steps to reduce the number of plastic bags been given away in their daily operations.

Some Solutions

Some companies place recycling bins at their stores. When customers come back to the store they can bring their bags and recycle them easily. However, the number of bags leaving the store and the number returning are not quite equal with far more going out then coming back.

There are stores that even remove the use of bags. The stores have started to encourage the use of cloth shopping bags and some stores ask the customers to purchase their own bags. Some consumers have already jumped on the idea and bring their own bags when they go shopping. As an interest, many stores have already step up in educating the shoppers and even provide incentives for shoppers who bring their own shopping bags.

Some stores also use recycled plastic bags instead of new bags. These bags come from the old plastic bags and they allow for the bags to be used over and over without extra pollution during the production process.

Recycling – What you Should Do

As mentioned, you should have no problem recycling. There are drop off spots that are almost as popular as aluminum can drop off points. Your local recycling center should also gladly take the bags for you.

Another thing you can do is reuse the bags instead of putting them in the garbage. There are many ways to reuse the bags at home. They are pretty easy to reuse and you can carry stuff. They can be used in the garden as a plastic layer to cut weed growth, too. With a little imagination you can find many ways to recycle.

Plastic bags have no place in the landfills. It has been such a big concern that environmentalists have been speaking of banning them. The simplest solution is recycling. The option is available and it is made quite convenient. There really is no reason for so many of these plastic bags to be winding up in landfills. You can do your part by not throwing out them and recycling them instead.

Beyond The Water Butt – Reduce Your Water Bill by Recycling Rainwater

Historically man has been catching rainwater and recycling it for millennia. There are early examples from Egypt and Roman times. Some are more complex than others, but the simple message is: catch the water falling from the sky and use it later.

In most countries nowadays health and safety concerns mean that recycled rainwater may not be used as drinking water. Its uses are limited to flushing toilets, washing clothes and watering the garden. There are many parts of the world where rainwater is regularly used as drinking water (also known as ‘potable water’) especially where there is no public water supply, or no other available sources such as rivers or lakes. It is important to adhere to your national and local water regulations. The rest of this article relates to using recycled rainwater for flushing toilets, supplying clothes washing machines and watering the garden.

Because these three areas account for about 50% of domestic water usage, householders can make substantial savings ion their water bills by harvesting and recycling rainwater. Toilets are by far the biggest user of water, with around a third of all water used in a house going straight down the pan.

Most countries have rainfall data which is obtained from regional weather stations. Typically records will detail the average monthly rainfall for the last thirty years. Like weather-forecasting in general, rainfall prediction is a very imprecise science.

In the UK, for example, we know it rains more on the west side of the country than the east, and that Scotland enjoys more rainfall than England. If you are considering installing a rainwater recycling tank it is worth obtaining the average rainfall data from the Meteorological Office because most manufacturers will be using them.

The important facts that you need to establish are:

How large is the roof area from which you will be collecting water?

You must base your calculations upon the flat area and not the pitched area. The Meteorological Office data will tell you how much water will fall in an average year on one square metre of your roof. Multiply these two numbers and then divide by twelve for a rough guide to the monthly rainfall that you will be able to collect in your rainwater harvesting tank. The amount of rainfall will determine the size of tank that you need.

How many people will use the rainwater?

In an average house, a normal person uses around 140 litres per person per day. If you are using harvested rainwater for flushing toilets, washing clothes and watering the garden, this will equate to 50% of your rainwater usage. As a guide, you should work out your water requirements for 14 days, since it is very rare in the UK for 14 days to go by with no rain. If this total is less than the tank size detailed above, then you have a big enough tank. If it is greater, then you may simply not have enough roof space or too many people in the house. Ultimately it is the roof area that determines the amount of rainwater that you can harvest.

Do you need mains water back-up?

If you are using the rainwater recycling system for flushing toilets then, yes, you do. If it is just for garden use, then the choice is yours. Please note that if you have mains water back-up, then hose pipe bans will apply to you.

There are three types of mains water back-up; all are activated when you run out of harvested rainwater.

The first back-up system delivers 100 to 200 litres of mains water into your tank whenever it runs out of rainwater. The second version requires a header tank which stores the back-up mains water; the latter remains within the pumping system. The header tank frequently includes a built-in pump. Mains water is only used when there is not enough rainwater. Electricity is required to power the pump. The third version uses a header tank in the roof space. The rainwater is pumped up to the header tank and usage is by gravity feed. When the rainwater runs out, mains water is fed to the header tank as needed. This system has the advantage of working even when there is no power.

Recycling rainwater to reduce mains water usage is simple and easy. If you are building a new property, you will make the property more attractive by including a rainwater harvesting system. If you have an existing property, then it may be possible to use harvested rainwater for the toilets, depending on where the cisterns and pipe work are situated.

To summarise, simply choose a tank and pumping system, get it installed and start saving on your usage of valuable mains water. You can now see that the systems are simple and easy to understand. And they are easy to install.

CarbonLite: Inside the World's Largest Plastic Bottle Recycling Plant

CarbonLite is the world’s largest “bottle-to-bottle” plastic recycling plant in Riverside, Calif.

“SoCal Connected” takes a look inside the state-of-the-art facility where billions of plastic bottles are churned on an annual basis. The process involves transforming old plastic bottles into PET pellets and flakes in order to produce new plastic bottles.

The bottles are required to go through metal detectors, a special “prewash” phase, and a label-removing facility before they can become shiny, brand new pellets.

Even though your plastic water bottle might not weigh as much, a square bale of plastic bottles can weigh more than 1,300 pounds, as Derrick Shore reveals in this segment of “SoCal Connected.”

How to prime articles made of recycled newspapers. It is a practical piece of advice by mistress of paper weaving Elena Tishchenko.
Primer is nontransparent white liquid that penetrates deeply into material and creates thin film when dry. Priming copes with two tasks at once. Firstly it makes surface of paper articles stronger and more durable. Secondly it saves paint. While priming an article, don’t forget of basic safety measures because primer is a toxic material.

Being a web designer how many web designs have you created? How many designs or mockups have you presented in front of a client? Do you remember how many were approved and how many got rejected? If you have been into this line even for a year I am sure you must be having a lot of website designs under your wings. But have you ever taken out time to look back to all your designs after presenting them to your clients, irrespective of them being accepted or rejected?
Designers specifically good ones just love to create new designs; it is not only about a job that feeds them it is more of a passion, zeal to discover new things out of their creativity.
Coming up with unique and new designs is commendable. This is how you differentiate a talented web designer from a not so knowledgeable one. But creating an entirely new design is meticulously slow. A professional web designer can come up with an attractive web design in just about 4 hours. You give them some extra time and they’ll make a kick ass design. But what if they are not given any time to prepare one, than what can they do? The answer to it is recycle an already exisiting design.
You can go back to all your collection of designs and pick one which wasn’t selected by your client. Implement on it all the necessary changes and modifications, and there you go you have a brand new website design.  The best part about it is that it will take only an hour and a half or maybe lesser to do it.
But a Web Designer must be very clear on this thing that recycling a web design is entirely different from copying a web design. Recycling is carrying out changes in one of your previously rejected design. There are very minute possibilities that it can get rejected back. It is so because what looks good to me might not please your eyes and vice versa. Same is in the case of website designs too. Therefore there are very high possibilities of it being accepted from the client.
Benefits of recycling designs:

Recycling a website design accumulates you a lot of time.
It eliminates blockages in the production.

When not to recycle designs:

If you client is not in a hurry and specifically asked for a new design.
If that particular design is owned by your client, be it a mockup too.
If you have plenty of time to create a new one.

Recycling is one way to which is very cost effective. This way you can add value to your rejected designs and provide your client with many mock ups to choose from.

Author says that recycling a Website Design is an art of bringing out an entirely new design from an existing web design. If a web designer has no time to make a new design than recycling can be the best option for him.
