Recycling and Products
Now, these biodomes would produce no trash at all, because virtually everything that would be
produced within them for consumption would be produced based on consumption pattern
analysiswhich means no wasteand would always be transferred directly to the point of
consumption without ever being packaged and unpackaged, and when containers would be
produced and used for consumables, the containers would always be reusable or recyclable.
Finally, because all food in these biodomes would be served in restaurants, instead of in homes
and restaurants both, the whole process of distributing food in the biodomes would be greatly
Regarding products, then, items such as paper napkins would be completely absent inside these
biodomes and would be replaced by cotton napkins, which can be easily cleaned and reused over
and over again for a long time. In fact, the presence of paper or wood products of any kind would
not be used inside these biodomes for anything, because, regardless of whatever wood product
there is for a function, there is always another material that could be used as a substitute that
would save the life of a tree and would take less labor to harvest or make. In the case of using
paper for writings or graphic communications, then, all visual information inside these biodomes
would be communicated with the use of electronic devices instead.
