The ReUse People reduces the solid waste stream and changes the way the built environment is renewed by salvaging building materials and distributing them for reuse.
Pond, Nestor Topchy
The following photos illustrate the process working with nature where my very wet yard which flooded and dried-up cyclically was stabilized as ecosystem by deepening and lining the banks of the wet spot with broken concrete from Reuse Houston to create a self regulating ecosystem year round retaining runoff rainwater to create a home for indigenous wild life species of every variety .
This natural clay bottomed pond is home to local species of amphibians, flora fauna and is visited regularly by water birds and life native to our region including Mosquito Fish.
Nestor Topchy applies mindfulness in reusing unwanted materials within a proactive respect for overlooked resources and situations in his work as an artist.
