Pallet Rack Repurposing is
Frugal, Fun and Environmentally-Friendly!

But first, a bit about repurposing... We hear a lot about the importance of taking action to preserve and protect our planet. But "Repurpose, recycle, reuse, reclaim" is indeed more than a trendy slogan! Choosing to put these actions into practice is not only very advantageous for the environment, but it can certainly be of personal benefit as well!

Reducing the waste being piled into landfills at a dangerous rate is of great importance! Repurposing pallet racking helps to accomplish this. It gives new life and purpose to metal that would have simply been discarded. Initiatives toward creation care is vital. Awareness of our environment's increasing challenges and deliberate efforts to conserve raw materials and to reduce emissions by decreasing the usage of global natural resources is our responsibility. 

We know that repurposing is environmentally-friendly, but there are personal benefits to repurposing as well. As the old saying goes, "Necessity is the mother of invention".  Is there a need that you may have? Think about that necessity and apply a bit of innovation and creativity, combined with a few pieces of scrap, and the sky is the limit in what a person can do! 

While necessity can certainly play a role in invention, creativity and imagination can carry us beyond a necessary invention to birth inspiration. 

And we all know that ideas without implementation are rather useless. They are simply imagination without creation. When inspiration accompanied by implementation through hands-on skill, takes hold of imagination, the result is innovation.  As Artist Pablo Ruiz Picasso once said, "Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working."  As we're busy with our everyday work we never know when great ideas will inspire us or light bulb moments enlighten us! Allow yourself to freedom with your inventive ingenuity! 

To sum it up, an active imagination accompanied with innovation and executed through implementation results in invention! Repurpose creatively! It's fun and frugal! Think outside-the-box and make it come true! An inventive imagination requires work to make an inspiration to reality… And by the way, if you like Picasso's saying, you can buy the poster below here!

We'd like to share some useful and innovative inventions, some that have developed out of life's necessities and others out of inspiration. To make it even better, these brilliantly clever ideas are made by pallet rack re-purposing! Perhaps you'd like to try them as well! And if you've come up with a cool idea, give us a call for your used pallet racking! Then, be sure to let us know what you've created!


Stackable Racks for Drying Firewood
Visit our Firewood Racks Page

For those of you who are able to heat with wood, here's an idea for you! How about making a nifty Firewood Rack out of used industrial racking? And it's not just a rack that holds a bit of firewood, but this firewood rack works perfectly for drying, stacking, measuring and storing cord wood! Each rack holds one face-cord of fire wood. They have been made to allow the wood maximum exposure to the elements for seasoning and they can be easily moved and stacked using a tractor with forks. They've made a big difference for us!  But that's just half the story. We made them out of scrap pieces of retired warehouse pallet racking - which means this metal has been rescued from ending up in a landfill somewhere!

There's nothing quite like the heat of a warming fire in the fireplace or wood stove to keep us cozy and warm when the weather turns cold!  Coming in from outdoors where the frigid air has numbed your cheeks, fingers, and toes, into a room that radiates with the wonderful warmth of a wood fueled fire is a feeling that's hard to describe! 

And these racks can help to make that experience possible! To learn about our Firewood Racks, heating with firewood and more, feel free to visit our Firewood Racks Page. Try out this creative and useful way to repurpose scrap pieces industrial pallet rack for yourself, giving a whole new life and purpose to the metal after it's no longer being use in the warehouse.
