[GreenYes] Japan as ground zero for no-waste lifestyle


Story from the Christian Science Monitor, December 16, 2008:

Japan as ground zero for no-waste lifestyle -

Three environmental models: Toyota's Prius factory, an electronics recycler, and a village that recycles 80 percent of its trash. 

excerpt:
?Similarly, Dowa, which is considered one of the leading global industrial recycling firms, has a pilot project for e-waste collection and materials recovery in developing countries in Asia. The company, which recaptures about 440 lbs. (200 kilograms) of gold each month, can extract 18 metals from the 800 varieties of high- and low-tech waste that roll into this plant each month. Much of it's the detritus of everyday life ? cellphones, watches, circuit boards, even pens.?
