Episode 21 — The four r’s of materials.

In this episode I talk about the four R’s of materials and products at the end of their “life cycle”.  The four R’s are:  Recycle, Renew, Reuse, and Repurpose..   Recycling is touted by many as the do-all end all and I talk in detail about what really goes into the recycling of a simple product, a beer can.   It is much better to avoid having to recycle things at all.

This episode was one of the easiest to make because it has few specific details, but is zoomed out to talk about things in a more philosophical terms.  This does include a small rant about the ways we are divided and a little about distributed vs. centralized systems.
