One of the best examples of recycling ever

Isla and Andrew at the studio helping Jeff recycle skids

Just had to tell you about this ingenious recycling idea carried out by my printing friend Jeff Garcia. Jeff takes the wooden skids that grocery stores regularly throw out (tsk tsk). He then rips them apart, sands down the wood and then fashions them into benches + other usable furniture for his studio. You can watch a little video of some of the process here. Just love that he recycles found material and saves the skids from going to landfill.
I think Mother nature is smiling down at Jeff.
