Energy
At the end of its life the article decays,
reducing large complex molecules to simple raw
materials by the action of bacteria and fungi -
composting.
Plants grow making sugars, starches, oils,
cellulose and complex molecules from simple raw
materials, mostly water, CO2 and sunshine.
Plants grow making sugars, cellulose and complex
molecules from simple raw materials, mostly
water, CO2 and sunshine.
In addition to harvesting food, people extract
fuel and base materials for industry and
commerce.
Manufactures make wares, measuring profitability
in environmental and social terms as well as
financial.
The end user reuses and repairs, only recycling
after as long a useful life as possible.

  • humans must dominate nature is a common idea
    in hierarchical societies
