ReSource Yard Boulder ColoradoHave you ever wondered what happens to old building materials when a home or office is remodeled? Unfortunately, the answer to that question is oftentimes those materials end up in our landfills. This is especially true when demolition takes place because usually things are torn out without the thought of ever being used again.

Earth Day April 22 2013 BoulderEARTH DAY 2013 -  This special day dedicated to our Mother Earth was first recognized on April 22nd, 1970, and got it's start by then-U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis.  After witnessing the ravages of the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill, and inspired by the student anti-war movement, Sen. Nelson called for an environmental teach-in, later called "Earth Day", to be held on Wednesday, April 22nd, 1970.       Sen.
