It’s been in the pipeline for a while but now, after more than a little procrastination and a lot of research, Treevolution’s Guide to Recycling in South Africa is here.

This short booklet is intended to be an easy-to-use guide to the basics of recycling and is full of useful tips, ideas and contacts for getting everyone recycling.

This is the first edition of the guide and while we have done our best to ensure it is accurate, useful, and up to date, there is undoubtedly room for improvement. So, if you spot an error or you have a suggestion for future editions please do let us know. You can do that by sending us an email on guides@treevolution.co.za or simply send us a message on Twitter or Facebook.

The recycling guide is free to download from here though we do ask you to give us a little hand by spreading the word. The download page includes some links for sharing the guide using social networks and you could also just tell your friends and colleagues about it the traditional way: word of mouth.

We spotted this when we ventured out north to the new BluBird wholefood market. The shop window display at this optometrist made clever use of old plastic bottles and caps to create a unique display for their spectacles.

Sometimes it’s not just about recycling old bottles and cans into new products but it’s also about re-using old materials to create new ideas. Very clever.

Have you seen a good re-use of old material recently? Send us a picture and we’ll post it here.
