What I hate about home improvement shows.

The thing I hate about home improvement shows, especially those “crasher” shows, is the utter waste.

Okay, so you’re going to gut the bathroom. While it makes great television to take a sledgehammer to a toilet or a pedestal sink, someone can use those fixtures. Take them out intact and recycle them to a salvage place. There is no need to demolish them and add them to our already full landfills.

Why break the windows and mirrors? It might take a bit longer, but they can be removed without breaking them. You an recut a mirror and you can send the windows to salvage.

Just because you don’t like it or don’t want it doesn’t mean it’s trash. Someone else might be crying to have it.

Wasteful. Utterly wasteful.

And so “American”.

We need to stop this mentality. Making TV ratings from it is the wrong direction and the wrong message.
