Comprehensive strategies for recycling, reuse, and repurposing are necessary for anyone interested in truly being sustainable. One Community has invested extensive time and research into the best small and large-scale recycling, repurposing, and reuse options for paper, plastic, glass, polystyrene/styrofoam, clothing/cloth, food and other perishable items, and non-recyclables. The research was extensive enough to warrant individual pages for each area. The following icons link to the pages related to this research:
Our goal is to open source share our group’s experience with all these as part of the development of the Earthbag Village and Duplicable City Center. We will evolve this page with those details and use what we learn to help us improve our recycling, repurposing, and reuse strategies as we build each of the next 6 sustainable village models.
