We visited the Pennsylvania Resources Council in Newtown Square, PA, to find out more about some interesting new recycled products.

The Pennsylvania Resources Council, started in 1939, has been involved with recycling for about 50 years. Through innovative programs, they have been informing communities on the importance of recycling and taking care of our surroundings. By visiting schools, and even offering a hotline, they are preparing Pennsylvania for an environmentally friendly future.

We met up with Rosemary Kesling, who gave us a tour of their beautifully restored house, which dates back to the 1790's. Not only is it a gorgeous house, but also uses many new recycled products, such as carpeting, insulation, and roof tiles. They even have a recycled driveway, made of a rubber modifier for asphalt, which double the life expectancy over standard asphalt. These products are not only environmentally friendly, long lasting, but also more affordable then ordinary products.
