Even wood can be recycled

With our friends of Green Team, we have decided for the begining of Spring to sahre about wood

Wood, natural and noble material at the start can also retrain and all stages of wood’s life:

– The first waste from sawmills
– The latter come from all manufactured objects
– Finally all manufactured products are reused and recycled into something else, without making a chemical transformation

The first waste from sawmills that used to make pulp, the manufacture of chipboard. The barks are also used as stuffing material or different chips are also used as bedding

The latter coming from all manufactured objects give amazing results in terms of creativity and we chose this niche there to show you some interesting initiatives.

You all rememberthe Villa Déchet (Waste Villa): The project set up in autumn 2010 by Frederic Tabary (architect) and Yann puddle (set designer) who were inspired by a similar house in California. The bins of Nantes (France) is where they found the raw material and then recycling these materials.

And then we’ll finish this post with a video that deals with the poetic recycling of paper …. which is only at the origin of wood! (In french, but very legible for non French speakers)

Do not be afraid to recycle

    Ce mobilier Turc Gursan Ergil a vraiment quelque chose d’unique. Il faut être créatif quand on recycle. Merci pour toutes ces idées. J’ai vu un reportage à la télé sur la maison “déchets”, je trouve cela très futé. Merci pour les infos et à bientôt pour la prochaine loop.

  5. J’adore le principe de la villa déchets de Nantes. Depuis elle est démontée, mais j’espère qu’elle fera des petits. frédéric Tarbarly invente des objets à partir de matériaux détournés. Il inspire aussi Maisons du Monde. Du talent à l’ouest 🙂
