Does recycled automatically mean green? The N+ew Stool handcrafted by designer Rodrigo Alonso (and available at Uncrate) is made from recycled computer parts, resin, and melted aluminum. N+ew stands for "No More Electronic Waste" but is this stool really wasting any less?
The computer parts aren't reformatted, necessarily, only covered over, sealed, and reshaped. What happens when it's time to get rid of this piece of furniture? How do we recycle this stool?
