Where the clever things are...

With all the talk about recycling, there are so very few companies that actually take trash or unwanted items and turn them into something new AND useful.

1. Uncommon Goods. Takes windshields and turns them into stemless wine glasses. Watch what happens when you drop your glass.

2. Rubber Recycle. Takes old tires and shreds them into chunks as soft fill for playgrounds. No more scraped knees on concrete or asphalt.

3. Patterns for crocheting annoying plastic grocery bags into all sorts of stuff--tote bags, beach bags and mats. And you don't have to be an expert knitter.

4. Yesterday's News. Turns newspapers into kitty litter. The best idea yet.
