carnival of trash

Welcome to the August 12, 2008 edition of carnival of trash. I was so worried I would be a Billy No Mates, but it’s amazing how many wonderful people have joined in with the second Carnival of trash! I’m so delighted to see you here, joining in the fun and talking a load of old rubbish. So, dear readers, take your pick from today’s Carnival posts and send us your thoughts.

Recycling

Reducing Waste

  • Beth Terry presents Take Back The Climate posted at Fake Plastic Fish, saying, “A discussion of the link between waste and global warming. There’s more to it than emissions from landfills or incinerators.”

Rethinking

Reusing

  • Condo Blues presents How to Make a Wine Glass Chandelier posted at Condo Blues, saying, “If I couldn’t have a designer $6000 wine glass chandelier for my dining room, I figured that I could make one out of orphan wine glasses for my craft room.”

That was fab and so much fun. Thank you all for taking part, I hope you all enjoyed reading the wide and varied topics covered in this carnival.

Next month, the carnival will be hosted on the other side of the pond over at Fake Plastic Fish, so tune in and enter some of your own posts if you have a blog.

  1. Hi Mrs G – At last, after a long day out and about, I’ve finally got around to properly visiting. Great Carnival everyone. It’s brilliant that so many people are joining in. Can’t wait to pop over and see everyone. ;-D

    I almost had a mini heart attack cuz I thought I forgot to send a post for this month’s Trash carnival, but then it turned out that for once I didn’t waited until the last minute. Must be getting old.

    Great carnival. Looking forward to reading all the posts. Will be hosting on my blog next month.

    Beth

  3. Hi Mrs Green,

    The Carnival is a great idea. I have never seen so many like-minds in 1 blog entry. The September pledges will surely receive a massive boost as well.

  4. Mrs Green says:

    It;s great isn’t it Mrs A. See what you have achieved in 2 short carnivals? I think it is going to continue to grow and become very popular.

    Beth, lovely to see you here – welcome :) Now I’m all star struck again. There is many a conversation here that ends up talking about you. How is your cat getting on? (Beth’s cat has suffered a broken leg recently; and of course, came home from the vet with a plastic collar around it’s neck LOL!)

    John, I was overwhelmed too. I have to admit writing to loads of people before the carnival to try and rouse some interest – I was determined not to be sitting here just having a chat with Mrs A (no offence, you understand, Mrs A ;) )
    I love the diversity on the subject. I’ve always felt that, but this really ‘proved’ it.

  5. LOL Mrs G – no offence taken – there are those times when we just chat to each other, those days when you think that no-one thinks the same. The great thing about the Carnival is it shows that even those who don’t concentrate on waste all the time still have deep thoughts on it. I also love the fact that it is international :-D
