Here’s something to ponder the next time you’re up late and staring out the window, wondering about your place in all creation:
Scientists who study the dispersement of material throughout the universe theorize that the Earth is so fantastically efficient at redistributing its matter –so mind-bogglingly good at re-using things– that every time you inhale, you are, in fact, breathing in at least a bit of Mr. William Shakespeare. (I swear, you couldn’t make this stuff up.)
And so it goes with water, dirt, air…and everything else. The Earth is, indeed, recycled…every last bit of it. And what is true for the planet at large is true for our own fair city.
On the next Outlook Portland, we’ll be joined by Alyssa Kail, Creative Reuse Center Manager of SCRAP. If you haven’t heard of SCRAP, just ask around: you’ll find that this quintessentially-Portland endeavor is making quite an impact on how our fellow townspeople reuse, recycle, and refashion everything.
The show will also feature another “Outlook Portland Editorial Reply”, brought to you by our marquee sponsor, Things From Another World. This week’s guest editorialist: the leader of The Decepticons…Megatron.
