Anyway, back to more generic stuff...
It seems like there are two options for sustainable types of products.
- Products which biodegrade quickly from readily renewable resources
- Products which are meant to last a really long time, from stuff that will last a long time (and the parts that run out first ought to be from readily renewable resources)
What does this mean?
It means that there's a lot of disposable plastic stuff which will no longer be the norm as oil gets more expensive. So what's on the out?
gosh, wouldn't it be great if there was a renewable resource-based tire! (besides just cannibalizing older tires...)
plastic fake plants? Please. These should be outlawed...
It also means that there will probably be an increase in temporary products made from plant-based material. Like this disposable flatware made by BSI Biodegradable Solutions.
Then there are those mysterious objects which seem neither here nor there - I haven't figured out how to think about them... stuff like CDs, or window fans, or lawn chairs...
Ok, I'm going to stop thinking about stuff and maybe close my eyes for a little while... :P
