Perhaps King Solomon was just feeling blue and looking with his human eyes and thinking with his finite mind when he penned Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.
We can name many new discoveries since the time of Solomon, however, one thing that isn't new under the sun is RECYCLING. It is the "in thing" now. Some entities are even making a lot of money; recycling is now a thriving business. The term may have not always existed, but the idea of taking one thing and using it for something different is as old as the leaves on the trees. In fact, nature always re-used the leaves on the trees. When the green leaves turned colors and fell to the ground the ground accepted them as nutrients and grew even greener the next season. Today we call that fertilizer or mulch.
I reused this make up bag and my Crop-A-Dile hole punch to make ribbon storage.
Maybe in his blue funk Solomon was right...after all we humans are just doing what nature has always done. Recycling materials is fun, money and earth saving. Try it!
