    It would be easy to underestimate the importance of this story and what is being done here. From an environmental, economic development and community development standpoint, this is a first step along the path toward the future, that being a circular economy. Right now, our economy proceeds from design to produce to market to sell, to use, and then dispose of. In a circular economy, as Mr. Spencer and his group are demonstrating, the last stage is not disposal, but re-use and re-purposing. None of this is going to be simple. In some cases, markets will have to be developed to make these businesses viable, even with public subsidies. But, what what we see in these pictures is the future.
