magnets, diapers & non-profits


-- Quote of the Day--

“…If someone wanted to start a project I think the best advice is to make connections and network… we would not have had the success that we have had if we did it on our own. We partnered with 10 other non-profits and Nelson Hues (publicity agent) and all kinds of other people. …Things almost always take longer than you think they will and …there will always be malfunctions, things will always go wrong. …but just get involved, do something physical and something that has a direct impact. ”

~ Alex Darrow – Picture the World Org. 

This quote you see here today was taken from an interview that aired back on March 8th this year on the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio Show... The direct link below will take you to the full interview:

You know that I just love to feature interesting new recycling technology especially when it means that we can now recover a material that was inaccessible before. Today I'd like to share information about a rare earth metal known as Neodymium (Nd), which is used in the production of high-performance and permanent magnets. So now, using the technology developed by the Institute of Industrial Science (Tokyo, Japan) we will soon be able to recycle scrap magnets from a wide variety of devices.

    More and more people should be informed about this! It's a tedious and messy job to constantly clean up reusable diapers but it makes a huge difference.
