soda can label embossing May is Reclaimed Materials Month

skillbuilder reusedmat 158x158 May is Reclaimed Materials MonthWith concrete month behind us, we’re continuing our 2012 materials theme in May by focusing on reclaimed, recycled, and directly reused materials. We’re probably also going to be shoehorning in a few straight creative reuse projects, under this banner, that are not strictly about the materials themselves. But I’m planning a special effort to keep the underlying what’s-that-stuff focus. I’m especially interested in direct DIY recycling and reclamation of bulk materials—cloth and lint, paper, aluminum, plastic containers, precious metals—and have some good stuff lined up in that vein.

But as always, if you have specific resources, requests, or recommendations, please let us know, below.
