If you’re like most business owners, you’re always on the lookout for ways to save your business money. Maybe you’ve even wondered if there is a way to reduce your company’s carbon footprint. Fortunately, there are materials that allow you to meet both your savings and your environmental goals. They are recycled materials. Here’s a look at four of them.

Recycled Timber

Recycled timber usually comes from sources, like factories, bridges, demolished buildings and so forth. Companies use this material to make flooring, decking, benches, shutters and more. However, construction companies can also use them to building frames for homes, staircases or retaining walls. This is a very versatile material that looks beautiful.

Bionic Yarn

Bionic Yarn is a material that’s made from plastic waste materials from the world’s oceans. It has been woven into a sturdy yet lightweight yarn that can be used for a number of purposes. Businesses that manufacture automobile interiors, clothing, footwear, housewares, (including decorative objects, like pillows or curtains) and luggage and bags have used this yarn to create some stunning pieces. In all actuality, the list of Bionic Yarn’s uses extends even beyond what’s touched on here.

Recycled Plastics

According to Readers Digest, the uses for recycled plastic run the gamut. Companies use recycled plastics to make beauty product containers or plant holders. Other companies use it to create decking materials. Still other manufacturers create toys made from 100% recycled plastics.

Recycled Metal

The construction industry utilizes scrap metal quite a lot for projects, like bridges and roads. It also plays a big role in transportation and automobile manufacturing. Some appliances makers turn to recycled metal as well to create their wares. These and other types of businesses use this resource because it’s cheaper than most “new” metal. In fact, it’s so useful and economical that some people in the industry have suggested that all metal products should be designed so that they can be recycled easily.

Using recycled material is a cheap and efficient way that many businesses save money on their manufacturing costs. It’s clear that just about anything you need to manufacture can be made from materials found in the scrap yard so to speak. It has also been shown that the recycling industry creates more than 1.25 million jobs. All in all, using recycled materials in your manufacturing allows you to meet your business and environmental goals in one fell swoop.
