  1. Closing loops is scalable beyond the individual/community level. Google industrial symbiosis. Material standardization in product development (vehicles for example) can help reduce landfill volume. As consumers, we should not only be demanding more carbon neutral products, but also supporting companies who employ more sustainable business models, an auto maker for example, who buys back your car at the end of its life and repurposes it, then resells it back to you. The list is endless.

    Cool presentation. Woodpeckers can help protect American football players?? Brilliant.
