Several studies show that most American people throw away 4.40 pounds of trash daily. The recycling process is very important for our planet nowadays, but a brand new way to control this situation is to upcycle. This means you really need to think twice before throwing something out. Maybe that item would become very useful for another purpose or it could be transformed into a decorative object. Reusing and repurposing stuff will be one of the best allies of our planet if we all become more involved in such activities.
