In the car listening to NPR I heard the CEO of Eco-cycle talking about the importance of making things completely out of recyclable material. The mission of the company is to create zero waste communities.

This eco-cycle concept is a cool one indeed! In their book "Cradle to Cradle" the authors McDonough and Braungart utilize a 100% plastic book to illustrate their notion of "up-cycling" which pivots on reducing waste and ultimately the Cradle to Cradle full cycle in which virtually every material that went into the original project is captured and utilized once again in the next product (ie. eco-carpet manufacturing). The other cool thing is that this book can be read in a hot tub.
