A Rubber Yoga Mat Can Prove To Be Very Useful!

Posted on: September 9th, 2014 by

The world is filled with garbage. Tons of it. So much, in fact, that there is a Texas-sized plastic island floating somewhere in the Pacific. Or is it the Atlantic? Does it matter? It’s hard to make sense and really conceptualize how much trash we generate as individuals. Recycling has certainly been an ever growing trend amongst developed countries but not nearly at the level that new trash is generated. Take your cellphone, for instance. While companies like schnApple and Shmamsung (see what I did there? NO FREE SEO FOR YOU!) try to best each other for the hottest new product EVERY YEAR, one has to wonder what becomes of discarded cell phones and their components as many consumers pride themselves in upgrading to the “newest, hottest, next big thing” or whatever other euphemism their marketing teams come up with.

A Rubber Yoga Mat Has Many Advantages!I happen to keep all my past handsets (I’ve amassed a small collection of cellphones in perfect working condition dating back to 2006) since I figured I could get more use out of them as ways to experiment with their components or just have a readily available back-up should something happen to my current handset. This is a habit that is borderline hoarding. It’s hard for me to get rid of electronics despite their age or usefulness. Something about it just seems like such a waste. After much nagging over the years from parental units, room mates, and wifey, I’ve curbed the habit. Sort of…

A good example is my old gaming consoles. My old Nintendo is now a multimedia PC. My old Sega Genesis (much SEO for you!) is a neat little workhorse computer for my studio to run software synthesizers. It also looks really cool and makes feel like I’m all smart when clients come by and see that not only am I not screwing around on the job by turning on my old Sega console, I’m actually about to run this girls awful vocals through a pitch correction program that won’t make her sound like T-Pain. Score.

At MatsMatsMats.com, we have many of these old samples and materials that are either obsolete or just no longer in production. Before they get thrown away, something like a rubber yoga mat samples are now kitschy little coasters. Small recycled rubber mat squares are now spacers for my custom PC cases to stop the rattling while the fans are on. What was once a near-hoarding of garbage I didn’t technically need has been, thankfully, turned into a knack for seeing trash as simply nothing more than perfectly good-to-use, un-maximized resources! Pulling over before a dinner date to load up an old couch on the side of the road never felt so handy and Earth-friendly. Then again, maybe loading up that “perfectly good” mattress from behind the caution tape wasn’t the best of ideas. Or most legal… or hygienic… or prudent. Meh, 1 in 10, right guys?
