An idea worth spreading
Every community can recycle it's own glass waste into a myriad of products that can then be offered to the community at a low cost. Because the supply chain is zero length the profit for the business owner is outstanding. Wal Mart can't compete with that business model.
I'm passionate about
Sustainable solutions for garbage. If it is worth too much as a material to throw away then the garbage problem goes away and becomes a commodity with value.
Talk to me about
Recycling, machinery, manufacturing, process control, materials, heat transfer, sustainable energy systems, rain water recovery, alternate energy systems, and anything else.
People don't know I'm good at
Building furniture from locally available materials with an extremely long life. Residential Building contractor and sustainable designs and construction.
My TED story
I am about to open the first community level glass recycling business in Mississippi. Magnolia Recycled Glass will purchase container glass from the community and manufacture glass tiles and glass table ware. I am experiencing a lot of static from the traditional business types. If recycling is profitable it won't have to catch on, it will be viral. A zero length supply chain allows for such profits. When garbage is too profitable to throw away waste issues will disappear. The materials are still there and don't lose any of their inherent value by the manufacturing process, use, or simply because the container is labeled garbage.
