Re: [GreenYes] recycled plastic bycicles
We should start using the term "reuse" in place of the misnomer "recycle,"
because the bicycle fender, just as the rest of it, is not recycled. None of
it is recycled, making the lifecycle cost analysis shoot off into the ozone
layer (excuse the pun).

How about in the discard management area.  You can recycle a metal bicycle
fender, but what about the plastic one.  Does your lifecycle cost analysis
include the present and future cost of wasting and pollution?  Or are you
saying that burning and/or burying plastic is more benign than recycling it?
