Books on Recycling


Cradle to cradle

Author - W. McDonough
Provocative and visionary (and we don't say that very often). This book proposes that products be designed from the outset so that at the end of their life they either become 'biological nutrients' that can renter the soil/water or 'technical nutrients' that can be reused within a closed loop. Recycling becomes unnecessary. The book is printed on a kind of plastic (should you be so decadent you could read it in the shower). It is an attempt to show how the book of the future might be manufactured. The idea being that when you have finished with the book you can reuse the pages for the next book. Excellent work, thoroughly recommended.
