"We are not to throw away those things which can benefit our neighbor. Goods are called good because they can be used for good: they are instruments for good, in the hands of those who use them properly."
- Clement of Alexandria (150-220 A.D.)
One of the most important things we tried to do with this remodel was to recycle as much as possible. Last fall we hauled off two pickup loads and a trailer full of wood scraps. We salvaged sinks, faucets, toilets, shower stalls, light fixtures, switch plates, mirrors, cabinets (anything we could) and donated them all to ReStore: The Habitat for Humanity resale shop.
Last weekend we finally got rid of the aluminum and iron.
We took it to the metal scrap yard, and came away with $47 in our pockets! Much better than taking it to the dump!
