Yep that’s right, the up-cycling phenomenon has boomed! In the united states we destroy roughly 2/3 of all pallets used. The sad part is most of these pallets are used once! That’s a lot of lumber and DIY projects being shredded and thrown in the dump for no reason!
Here at B*A*D we dislike waste, so we have found at least 12 projects that are super simple and done with pallets that have been dismantled.
If you are interested google “Upcycled pallets” to see the countless options.
A great way to get pallets is to call manufacturing companies, shipping warehouses, and packing warehouses an ask if the have scrap or unneeded pallets. I know from experience that most places will be grateful to get rid of them especially in the early spring during their harvest cleanup.
