SecondLife

What does “Save the Planet” to you?

Does it involve re-cycling?
Do you know what it means to re-use?
Have you ever considered re-creating?

Well, it’s time to give your things a second life…

SecondLife is a new project and builds on our theme of recycle / reuse. We will be expanding this project to encompass a framework that can be used by schools, organizations, and companies to quickly assemble the tools necessary to start their own recycle / reuse project.
