Format: Paperback
I confess my excitement about this book because it goes much further than any to date in its prescription for long-term sustainability. This book covers an area of sustainability that has not been addressed by many, with the exception of Cradle to Cradle, in that it distinguishes sustainability from delayed resource depletion. Recycle Everything is unique however, because it is a play book that defines the systems, processes, roles and challenges to be met to achieve long-term sustainability. I believe this book is a must-read for anyone interested in sustainability and green business practices.

Recycle Everything throws down the gauntlet on the current unsustainable production system that supplies all the goods to the economy. This system consumes resources until they are exhausted and for this reason cannot be sustainable. The book asserts that efforts such as life cycle assessment and similar methods only delay the inevitable, an economic decline. The book goes on to illustrate and provide examples of a cyclical system that retains within itself all the materials used in production. The cyclical system is called a "system for material sustainability", which circulates goods or their constituent materials among several roles including the manufacturer, consumer, disassembler, materials re-processor and others. The system is a closed system that eliminates extraction of new materials and their subsequent disposal.

The book is predicated on the notion that, for the manufacturing industry, resource depletion is a more urgent motivation to become sustainable than protection of the environment.
