Thankful Thursday! March 18, 2021

So very, very thankful for recyclers!
Using their imagination and creativity!
Thanks Brian for Thankful Thursday!



  1. That's really something and hooray for those creative recyclers! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. I like what the recyclers are doing. There is so much waste and most can be recycled and put to good use.

  3. What a cool idea! Those disposable ones would really be a waste. Mom has ones made out of something more plastic like that are washable.

  4. This is most brilliant. I'm thankful for everyone that's involved.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Kathe. Big hug to you and Russell and lots of lovies to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  5. Great video about recycling ~ amazing ~ ^_^

  6. Ohhh I agree with Brian...
    I finished my quilt made from the sketch you sent me (I might have improvised a bit). Now I am about to teach myself Free Motion quilting. I ordered necessary attachments. I'm gonna practice lots before I actually try it on my quilt. Stay tuned. LOL Hugs Cecilia

  7. That is what this country needs more of, great innovation!

  8. I would never have dreamed that chop sticks were recycle items. Something for everyone.

  9. I love to reuse and recycle things, even on a very small scale at home. But it's nice to think in terms of reusing, reshaping things. The imagination start growing!😊
    Happy Today and a fine week!

  10. That is such a great use for used chopsticks.

  11. So Cool! I actually know about Chop Value and what they do! I lived in Vancouver and some of the guys in our fab shop had worked with them. I have heard nothing but good things about what they do, how they do it and their products! I am amazed at how many franchises they have started to recycle these single use products. Thanks for posting the video, I have not seen it before. Thank you for visiting us and have a marvellously happy day!

  12. That was a cool video. We know CHina has zero human rights so why would they care about recycling? UGH! I Have two recycle bins filled to the brim ready for pick up tomorrow. There is a company here I beleive, in the US, that takes water bottles and recycled them into very pricey womens shoes. Rothy's! A gal I know said they are the most comfortable shoes ever. I sure love hearing these stories. Thanks for sharing.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
