1.Do you know any company which makes products from recycled items? If yes,what's the name of the company/brand?
A. Lots of companies use recycled products these days; the telephone company (Qwest in my area) recycles its telephone books to make new ones. Bottlers recycle. Homes in my area have recycling pick-up days. It's "everywhere".
2.What do you think about using recycled items for creating new design items?
A. That's a nifty idea; however, in order to make my own product consistent and affordable, I mostly use new products. I'll certainly buy recycled paper if it's the right consistency/purpose and I can get it on a regular basis; but to use something "I happened to find", well...if I can't find this product again, I can only sell "unique" items, which isn't desirable or profitable for me.
3.Do you find nature friendliness and recycling imporant? Why/not?
Everyone, to some extent, thinks it's "important", except for the kind of jerks who still throw their trash out the car window while driving. I guess my next question would be: What is your definition of "important"?
4.Your opinions about Secco ? (please visit ----> http://www.seccoshop.com/english/index.html
A. I think the stuff is cool - if you don't mind selling unique products like that, without the possibility of repeat orders (since you might not have the exact materials to make an exact duplicate of any given product), then more power to ya.
I don't necessarily care that the items are produced from recycled materials, and many people don't want to be "preached" to, so I was happily surprised it was very much in the background. However, for media purposes you'd really have to talk it up more. So goes the dilemma.
