biodegradable - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
To have a healthy planet every time we make an item it must have a full cycle planned for its components and impact upon the natural world. This was taken care of for pre-industrial mankind through biodegradability. What was made was taken care of by other organisms and rejoined the ever-cycle, the recycling that can go on and on. This is the only example we have of true sustainability and we must have the intelligence to take it as our gold standard for future design.
Recycling for eons was taken care of for us. All waste was biodegradable and bacteria and fungi did their job in putting those nutrients back into creation in healthful ways. If we are going to be creating waste, we need to do as God did, we need to have ways that bring those nutrients back into nature in healthful ways. There is no need to reinvent the wheel here, but there is a profound need to follow our divine role model. Whatever we produce must be planned with a full cycle, a creation to dissolution model.
