Riassunto: Recycle: The Essential Guide is a basic introduction to the how?s, what?s, when?s and where?s of recycling. With vibrant visuals and a clear, accessible layout, the book illustrates all angles of the subject from the urgency of resource depletion to the lighter, consumer-oriented aspect of eco-design.
Recycle opens with an introduction from renowned Guardian journalist, Lucy Siegle. In her inimitable way, Siegle contextualizes recycling in the changing global economy; discussing the way it has changed throughout the ages, and raising questions about where it is headed. Following the introduction is a comprehensive section of recyclable materials; Paper, Plastic, Metal, Glass, Household Waste and Compost. Each material is explained in depth; how it is sourced, its impact on the environment, how the recycling process occurs and what each individual reader can do to facilitate these processes. Interspersed amongst these sections will be a variety of little stories, facts and suggestions for inventive reuse in the home. Colorful and distinctive images run alongside, giving voice to the text.
The third section of the book is a series of 20 case studies from around the world. These case studies pay tribute to exceptionally successful or innovative approaches to recycling, such as those of New York state prison?s composting and Curitiba, in Brazil, as well as representing the darker side of recycling that of illegal export of waste to developing countries. Some of the cases will be on a national scale, others small, local initiatives. Together they illustrate just how global this issue is, and how important it is to learn from others, to find solutions to the ever expanding problem of waste.
A consumer directory follows; from chairs made out of bathtubs, to bags made out of billboard banners and strange countertop alternatives of melted mobile phones, this section addresses the issue of eco-design. In order to move forward with recycling, we as consumers need to support the recycling industries as well as the designers and artists who are using found resources, rather than producing new ones. Funky furniture, clothes and home accessories, brilliantly illustrated, with contact details alongside, will show that ethical living and trendiness are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
Recycle is a call to action, and the penultimate section of the book shows readers how to take that action. A comprehensive international directory points readers in the direction of organizations and companies who can offer advice and solutions to any recycling query they may have. This directory is divided into three sections; governmental, non-governmental and materials. Whether you?re wondering about glass recycling or need to get in touch with your local authority, this directory will guide your way. Finally, a glossary clarifies the meaning of all the important recycling terms. It?s time to wake up and smell the rubbish. It?s time to take responsibility for our waste. Recycle is the essential guide for all those who want to take that journey but aren?t sure where to start.
