Usage types (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle)

Hereby, there is an information about from which types of trash can we make certain products. See also parent post about reduce, reuse and recycle here.

Usage types

Cover for car seats

Especially expensive cars definitely need it. Not only natural wear and tear can cause damage to the car seat. It is easy to drop a drink on a seat. The child can be sick, nausea would my deceit dirty and damaged. I personally place a heavy cargo with my tools on the rear seat when it is free of passengers. The cargo can scratch the skin of the seat. It is especially painful if their seat is made of natural expensive skin. Following materials can be used to cover the car seat and protect it from damage:
Plastic film. Can be used for cover of cover seats if it is big enough.
Fabric. Multiple pieces can be sewn together to make the whole part of the fabric bigger.
Cardboard. Usually it is big enough to cover the major part of the car seat.

Dish washing

Coffee leftovers.
Tea leftovers.


Plastic bags. As a rubber gloves for one time use.


As a handkerchief (one time use or multiple times), the following can be used:
Plastic film.
Plastic bags.
Dirty clothes.

Packaging filler

Any compressible trash can serve as a packaging filler. Just need to make sure it is dry and clean.

Putty knife

Plastic sheets.

Putty board


Wood sheet.

Sell to recycle center

The following types of garbage could be sold for money to recycle center. Getting money is the best way to use unused trash. Though amount of money is usually not so big, I could be bigger if weight of trash accumulated is big enough.

Metals. Iron is the cheay one. Aluminum and copper are much more expensive.

Cables. Because they contain valuable metal (copper).

Glass. Cheaper than metal. However glass weight is big because glass is very popular type of trash.

Plastic bottles.


Portable toilet for poop for a human can be created based on the home toilet for cats. That could be useful inside of any room/building without access to the restroom. E. g. warehouse or construction facility, house with broken sewage etc. In the forest, we can just poop on the ground and dig it into the ground. However inside of a building or facility we don't always have such an option. 

Portable toilet consists of 3 main components:

  1. Flat rectangular plastic box. It should be plastic to be water proof (because poop can contain liquid that can flow out and cause ecological and bio-chemical disaster in the room). We need a box because it has walls, and walls can protect surrounding areas of the room in case of accidental process when landing operation is not straight.
  2. Flat plastic (or made of any other water-proof and at the same time flexible material) one-time use surface. That surface is to be replaced every time. That could be plastic film, plastic bag etc. That surface lays down at the bottom of the plastic box supra. To use sheet surface as a toilet, unfold it and place to the bottom of the box. If possible, use 2 or even 3 lawyers of the sheet to provide additional protection for the floor against the poop.  Any water resistant flat surface (plane, sheet) can serve as a portable toilet for poop but not for pee. Don't use the sheet made of hard (not flexible) material like cardboard. Because it will not be easy to fold after we did our business. 
  3. Filler that is laying down on the flat surface. Filler can be any type of trash - paper, small plastic pieces, organic waste etc. Filler serves for additional absorption of the poop to prevent its spread. Filler is to be changed every time after every poop. For humans at least, not for cats lol.

Than poop in the position of an eagle. Than carefully fold the sheet and place it in the plastic bag together with the toilet filler. If possible use 2 or 3 plastic bags to provide additional protection against leaking. Than trash plastic bag in the nearest garbage container.

That type of the toilet is for poop but not for pee. For pee, males could use plastic bottles instead. For females, other means should be developed.

Sheets made of the following materials can be used as a portable one time toilet surface:

Cardboard. Though it is made of paper, it could be considered as a water resistant material just because it is fat enough.


Plastic. Could even serve multiple times if washed.

Plastic bags. They are of the same shape as plastic film.

Toilet paper

The more paper is soaked with water, the healthier and convenient it is for our skin. That's why mom's use baby wipes for babies instead of a regular toilet paper. Surprisingly, some kinds of trash are already naturally soaked and wet like banana peels. Following types of garbage can be used as a toilet paper:

Banana peels. Not needed to be soaked, they are already naturally wet (the internal side only).

Paper. No need to crumple it up. Instead, soak it with water. Don't add anything else to water to avoid possible skin allergy.

Washing machine

Rain. See supra.

River. See supra.
