# 7 Garbage is Gold

by Community Forests International on December 15, 2012

We live in a world filled with stuff. One of the most important (and radical) things you can do is reuse and repurpose what many would call junk. Some of the most elegant and simple solutions to problems have been solved when people think differently about “garbage”. In Pemba, local beekeepers have innovated a simple beehive fashioned from old steel barrels and broken bicycle parts. Because the hives are made of metal they don’t get eaten by termites, and a little grease on the hive’s legs keeps the ants from all that tasty honey. We would love to see some of the interesting and innovative solutions that get you excited.
