Decentralization is one of the keys to abundance for everyone. Even though I read Small Is Beautiful by E.F. Schumacher decades ago, the phrase still sticks with me -- What we need is not mass production, but production by the masses. I would like to see some really smart chemical engineers come up with ways to make new products out of everything that now goes into the landfill; preferably, ways that can be implemented on a cottage industry scale. This way, we provide opportunities for productive involvement by a large number of people and reduce waste and pollution at the same time. While we're at it, let's create an ocean-going flotilla with rotating crews to clean up the trash we've unceremoniously dumped in the ocean.
SkyDancer I've felt the same way! There's so much that could be used in some way. I ran across this ingenious gadget some clever guys made that reuses plastics. It isn't a whole answer but a beginning. Check it out: https://facebook.com/playgroun…
