Today we talk about various ways to make would-be waste useful and about changing our perceptions of the "trash" we throw to that mythical place, "away." Listen in as Dan Knapp, sociologist and founder of Urban Ore (a salvaging establishment in Berkeley) and Brennan Blazer Bird of the Peace on Earthbench Movement (which is based on the use of litter-packed bottle bricks) discuss their efforts to reclaim, redesign, and repurpose the excess of our modern lives.
