I think a few people here seemed to miss the point completely. Take a wider view, you might be surprised what you discover when you open your mind a little.

So his main argument against recycling is that it destroys art?

The problem is that most of his examples of creative reuse involved the destruction of building and temples. Also, plastic water bottles aren`t art.

Matwix, no offense, I hated it. :-D
But hey, not every post is a winner.
Why, even some of MY posts have shown to be unpopular
{I know! Can you believe it!}
Usually the ones I think are really, really funny bomb.

Go know.

This is the problem with TEDx talks, they are largely unregulated and anyone can host them about almost any topic.

I lasted about 2 minutes before it was clear he had nothing useful to say.

Gerry1of1 - Wasn`t a Ted Talk. Was a Tedx Talk. I only put `Recycling Sucks`, someone added `Ted Talks` to the title. :P

SO instead of recycling make some crappy looking useless art from it. Someone need to slap this hipster douche.

I made it 14 minutes in.... that was the most boring TED Talk I`ve ever seen. TEDs are always about the future, new and innovative ways of doing or looking at things. This was just a dull powerpoint presentation on the history of recycling.

Thanks for making me sleepy before I head out to work.

Creative reuse.

Yeah, great. Your neighbor takes the tires off his old Ford, paints them white, cuts it so the top is serrated like a cheap crown and then fills them with flowers and lines his driveway with a dozen or so. Your property value has just taken a direct hit.
