When is " Old Money" NEW Money?

US shreds 10,000 pounds of paper money every day. On a average your dollar survives only 21 months
before going to the shredder. Years ago the US currency removed from circulation was burned. 

Around 1990 the Federal Reserve started to research how they could recycle the money. Horse breeders tried to use the shredded material as bedding but the "old money" caused the horse to break out in skin rashes. Other tests included: insulation, mattress filling and roofing shingles. 

1994 Amazing Recycled Products was working on a research project with Levis regarding recycling their factory waste. We were in the process of extruding pencils when I got the idea that perhaps the US Banknotes could be another option for pencils. We first tried a high compression hex pencil but the results were not of the liking. But after mixing the material with plastic we were successful in extruding pencils. 

We offer both standard pencils and special order golf pencils all made with US paper banknotes. These pencils feature the official reclaimed currency logo so you know you are getting a certified  pencil. 

All made in the United States from US Banknotes. We have now extended this line to include a slim stick pen made with the currency and plastic. 

This pen comes in a minimum of 250 pieces at a special introductory price of .44 each including your message. Please mention " Old Money" Promotion to get this price. The pen features black ink and a cap that is proudly stamped USA

Soda Bottle Houses

Building Houses from sand and recycled plastic soda bottles is quickly becoming the new construction method around the world. These homes are not only inexpensive to build, but the sand acts as an insulation and also has proven to be structural. 

The house below has a heavy earth/green roof weighing up to 30 tons when wet and yet the only support is in the bottles themselves without any extra reinforcement. Constructed from 8000 bottles, it is the first house in the world made from PET bottles without using cement in the walls. This house is located in Honduras 

Some houses are made using a combination of glass wine bottles and plastic PET bottles. The house shown below features wine bottles on the right wall and soda bottles on the left. This creates an attractive pattern to the wall. This house does use the cement with the bottles.


Houses made from glass bottles have been around for a very long time. Bottles were used as building material because of lack of trees in the area and of course cost. Many of these houses still stand today.

One the most famous older glass bottle houses in the US is located in Kaleva Michigan. The house was completed in 1941 and is made from over 60,000 glass bottles and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Once inside it looks like any other home. 

If a house is just too much to think about. Perhaps a simple backyard wall is good start. The bottles produce a nice texture and with sand they could be a great sound barrier as well.
