This book I found very inspiring and I learned a lot!
This book has been a very informative read. I was brought up to be a recycler and thought this was the environmental thing to do. I have seen films on landfills and so I thought recycling was the only solution.
This book explains that one should first try to reuse items and keep using them as long as possible rater than always recycling or worse throwing them in the garage.
This book for me personally was not only thought provoking, it was inspiring me to either keep things longer or pass them on to a person who really needs it.
This is a well written book. I highly recommend it.
A Book That Applies Common Sense to the “Green” Movement
Recycled Thoughts is an interesting take on the “Green” movement, challenging the way we think about energy usage and recycling. The author brings up important points. For one, our modern society is far too wasteful, despite recycling so many things. For another, recycling is a manufacturing process, and as Rodrigues writes, “any manufacturing process- including recycling- produced some form of pollution.” It is better to use a quality-made product that lasts forever, than to take it for granted that you can just recycle things.
We’ve become a society that makes everything disposable. Life was simpler, cleaner and “greener” in decades past. This book encourages people to slow down, stop and think and applies common sense to a nonsensical world that’s become too busy for its own good.
