Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Repurpose: New chemistry for old lab equipment...



I love old chemistry, laboratory and pharma equipment. It's a little steampunk ... a little Phillip Pullman. A little magical. And in this round up, it's fresh. Or maybe I'm feeling like someone needs to conjure spring in a lab because that's the only way we're getting it this year!
