Build you house with recycled materials

Did you know that 60% of rubbish that ends up in trash bins can be recycled? Glass, vehicles, papers, aluminum, all of them can be recycled completely and put in use in short time and save a huge amount of energy that is wasted every day.

Thousands of people nowadays started to show interest and participate in recycling not only by segregating recyclables at home (separate metal, paper, glass) but also by making and creating items with recyclable materials to inspire and influence others to recycle too.
