Today we are going to approach a huge chapter in the building industry, wooden pallets. The Wooden Pallets are used to carry all kinds of materials from bricks to windows up to the building site. Most of the companies that use them are getting rid of them, even paying others to carry them out or burn them, they are cheap in huge quantities and the wood from which they are made off is not high quality so the result can be just one.
Do you consider yourself a friend of the environment? Maybe you can start a small campaign in your home town, or take small steps by being the change you want see in the world and start off by using them yourself. Be an example for the ones around you and recycle. You can make some nice coffee tables out of them, even an industrial looking couch or some stairs for your country side house or farm, who knows. The possibilities are huge, you can make a swing, a small bench for your porch and so on.
You just have to keep in mind two important things: some of the examples presented bellow or anything that it`s dedicated to the exterior has to have the wood treated first in order to be protected from the exterior agents or from climates with high humidity.
Second of all, and the most important thing, you have to like what you design and to keep in mind that the thing in your house or outside of it did not just helped the environment but also helped you to feel better about yourself. If you are doing it for the wrong reasons you will not have the same fulfilling feeling, the supreme act of creation for yourself and the ones around you.
