Each ton (2000 pounds) of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water. This represents a 64% energy savings, a 58% water savings, and 60 pounds less of air pollution!

Who is Pelican Street Designs?  We take an item that has outlived its present purpose and turn it into a new product that will give the outlived item a whole new value.  We up-cycle or reclaim.

 

What is the difference between recycling and up-cycling or to many reclaimed? 

Recycling - The consumer throws aluminium cans and foil into a recycle bin. ... It then goes through a re-melt process and turns into molten aluminium, this removes the coatings and inks that may be present on the aluminium. The aluminium is then made into large blocks called ingots. Each ingot contains about 1.6 million drinks cans. 

Up-cycling or reclaimed is where a person or company takes a soda can and cuts it into a shape maybe embosses it paints it makes it into an embellishment, a type of art piece or useful item.
