A worker picks up a plastic bottle at the Taiwan Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation building before a news conference in Taipei November 4, 2009. A plastic bottle thrown into a Taipei recycling bin could be reincarnated as a blanket to warm disaster victims in any of 20 countries, thanks to a unique project by the world's largest Buddhist charity. The Taiwan Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation has been taking plastic bottles from the waste stream of Taipei, a city of 2.6 million, for three years to convert them into about 244,000 polyester blankets intended for disaster zones.

Recycling bins are seen at the Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth, Wales March 25, 2010. The Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT), a sprawling eco-complex set up during the 1974 oil crisis, will publish proposals in June to eliminate emissions from oil, gas and coal. While Britain was the first country to set legally-binding targets to cut emissions, by 80 percent from 1990 levels by 2050, CAT's strategy goes even further. Picture taken March 25, 2010.

A crane lifts a car body at the Scholz scrap metal recycling plant in Espenhain, October 2, 2012. Low steel consumption in Europe is eating into ferrous recyclers' margins, an EU industry body said on Wednesday. "The general situation of the EU steel industry remains worrying; steel demand is 25 percent below its 2007 level and with a current 25-30 percent overcapacity," the European Ferrous Recovery and Recycling Federation (EFR) said in a statement.

A worker looks through industrial scrap materials at Dowa Holdings Co's Eco-System Recycling Co, a recycling plant, in Honjo, north of Tokyo March 28, 2008. Thinking of throwing out your old cell phone? Think again. Maybe you should mine it first for gold, silver, copper and a host of other metals embedded in the electronics -- many of which are enjoying near-record prices. It's called "urban mining", scavenging through the scrap metal in old electronic products in search of such gems as iridium and gold, and it is a growth industry around the world as metal prices skyrocket.

Scrapped automobiles are piled up at Vtormet industrial company, in the Moscow suburb town of Lyubertsy, June 16, 2010. The scrappage programme awards car-owners 50,000 roubles ($1,718) to trade in vehicles 10 years or older for a new Russia-produced model. It has been a big success in achieving its aim: boosting production at Russian car factories, including assembly plants operated by the likes of Renault and Ford as well as Russian makers, who shut down their lines last year.

An employee places a discarded monitor before disassembling it at the Coopermiti warehouse of electronic waste in Sao Paulo March 6, 2013. According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Brazil generates the greatest amount of electronic waste (e-waste) per capita among emerging countries. Coopermiti is an e-waste cooperative formed in 2010 that sorts through technological trash and develops solutions for breaking it down for the purposes of recycling. At the same time, Coopermiti offers opportunities for employment and environmental education for the community. About four tonnes of circuit boards, found amongst the e-waste, are sent to Dowa Holdings Co. Ltd. in Japan each month, from which rare metals may be recovered.
