This story was summarized on the EPA OPPT NEWSBREAK, Weekend Update,

Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow ??

I seem to recall a group in Baltimore that worked with disadvantaged
youth to turn pallets into furniture and cosmetic items. Body Shop was
one of the purchasers. I think it may have been written up in In
Business (JG Press) a couple years ago. Sorry to be so vague, but
perhaps this will trigger somebody else's memory.

For an historical perspective of waste management, you may be interested
in obtaining a copy of Martin Melosi's, Garbage in the Cities: Refuse,
Reform, and the Environment, 1880-1980, Texas A&M University Press,
College Station, 1981.

There are nice benefits from such locally adaptive "informal reuse" - it'd
be nice to see more encouragement/facilitation, such as mentions by public
recycling programs on web pages etc. -k
