a product, we waste 93% of the materials…and even then, 80% of the products
we make don’t last for more than 6 months….
of the materials are like our old friend, the tailpipe smoke, or hazardous
metals in our water, or solvent disolving slowly into the atmosphere, or just
plain old scraps that become piles of garbage.
of something you own,…imagine you had to carry around all the coal, solvents,
metals and other materials that it took to manufactured. How big would this pen be?
when I am done with my pen, I throw it, and the other 93% of it’s mass into
the atmosphere, and pull more out…and we are getting better and better at it.
