My friend wrote a piece on her blog (her first blog entry!) about recycling. She talked about a documentary she saw that said that the recycling process has a larger carbon footprint and is more damaging to the environment than not recycling is. Got me thinking… what kinds of technologies are we looking at that can reduce the carbon footprint of the recycling process? Or are we stuck using archaic non-green equipment? She mentions using lasers… what effect would that have?
What do you all think?
