The wastes of are a massive untapped source of wealth that I think and especially the movement need to take better advantage of

We'd never need to buy paper if we pulped and recycled junk mail and receipts. We'd never need to buy dirt if we composted all our food waste. We'd never need to buy anything made of plastic or aluminum if we melted and molded them ourselves. We'd need to buy much less wood if we collected all the discarded pallets

@socalledunitedstates Pallets are good sources of wood, but they're also items that have standards of size and condition. There used to be places that bought & sold them exclusively, even repairing damaged ones. If you get whole standard shipping pallets they're likely to be happy to swap a good one for the wood of several broken ones (if you're after firewood anyway).
