Everything recycles. It is simply a matter of timescale.

Looks like that was an early version of Quiet Riots, Bang your Head.

The day that the archaeologists discovered that history disappeared.

Kind of like the Shoe Event Horizon....

very neat

I've been thinking about this on a small scale for several years

ex: could we design packaging to be used again or as another item after it has served its purpose (esp. structural packaging like space fillers, trays with rows, wrappers...)

this requires a significant and deliberate shift in conception of certain designs, and an increased amount of collaboration between manufacturing sectors

Is interesting to note that recycling as been around for quite some time...

There is a company that started recycling paper in the 1930's called Fort Howard, in Green Bay, where there were a lot of paper mills... bought out by James River to become Fort James, eventually bought out by Georgia Pacific (Koch Industries).

Anyways, all the paper mills were profitable and of all the paper mills in the area, this recycling mill was the most profitable,... and any employee that worked there was considered very fortunate.
