Practical (and fun) example of product reuse in this bus shelter fabricated from decommissioned school buses. Sculptor Christopher Fennell saved 3 school buses to create the functional sculpture located in Athens, GA. Whimsical, reminiscent of childhood and good for the environment rolled into one.
Wouldn’t you want to wait for the bus in this environmentally-friendly shelter?
Nice job, Mr. Fennell!

Product recycling reduces what goes into the landfills. It also results in decreases the flow of products into the recycling process which saves resources – energy, time, and money.
The more products we use again, the better it is for our planet and our wallets.
