Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Annie Leonard is the author of The Story of Stuff. She tells Steve Paulson what happens to most of the plastic bottles consumers carefully washout and recycle: they end up being shipped to the third world.

Then, Tom Szaky is the founder and CEO of a company called TerraCycle. His book is Revolution in a Bottle: How TerraCycle Is Redefining Green Business. Szaky tells Jim Fleming how his company turns candy wrappers and juice bottles into pencil cases and backpacks sold at Walmart stores.

Next, Mark Frauenfelder is co-creator of the weblog BoingBoing.net and the author of Made by Hand: Searching for Meaning in a Throwaway World. He talks with Anne Strainchamps about some of his DIY (do-it-yourself) projects from vegetables to cigar box guitars.

And finally, David Sterritt is chair of the National Society of Film Critics. He tells Steve Paulson about beatnik filmmaker Bruce Conner, the father of the music video and creator of a style of video montage that's still widely influential and prefigures today's upcycling movement.
