Reduce, reuse, recycle. The words "reduce" and "recycle" are common in our modern society, but what does it mean to reuse? In this episode of World Ocean Radio host Peter Neill will discuss the concept of reuse, successful ways in which we practice it globally and locally, and examples of both personal and industrial sea- and land-based failed practices which leave behind many things rendered seemingly obsolete.
Peter Neill, host of World Ocean Radio, provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects. World Ocean Radio, a project of the World Ocean Observatory, is a weekly series of brief audio essays available for syndicated use at no cost by community radio stations worldwide.
