We shot and edited a documentary titled “The Bait Brothers” which aired on Current TV. What inspired me to create Captured Waste To Energy .com?Being a person with a fertile imagination, I want to do everything. I accept short term responsibilities because I don’t want to be prevented from taking off at a whim when other opportunities arise. I love diversity in all things I do. I need to sustain happiness. Im happy now but Id like to have something to fall back on when I need to rest. The only people who I ever met who were happy were the ones who loved the work that they did. I knew I had to learn to love recycling. To do this, I’ve invested a great deal energy into research and development of unique waste to energy concepts. One major motivating factor was that, I know that everything recycles and that everyone needs a recycler in their life to help them do it thoroughly. Also the opportunity to help solve the world's zero waste challenge, while being a monumental and lofty goal, i get inspiration from the idea that something so important is so doable. Im thankful to be among the innovative souls who embrace this journey toward a cleaner safer world that results from a functioning zero waste infrastructure. Some wisdom Ive gathered from observing successful people is that, to win at the game of life and business, you have to innovate in your field. Aim to create goods and services that people could easily recognize as more efficient and at a higher value than what other people have to offer. I choose waste to energy because I want to live in a clean and safe world. I believe most people also want to move in this direction. I’ve known for some time that environmentalism was ultimate field for me because of the realization that we have only one planet and a finite amount of resources to share. It's apparent when looking at the world and the behavior of it's inhabitants that collectively we humans are consuming faster than we can regenerate essential resources. For the past dozen years (since around the age of 30), I’ve been looking into waste to energy and recycling because it provides a multiple of benefits for society. Winning in the waste to energy field means you are converting the communities liabilities into assets, which in turn, are my assets. Understanding the myriad of ways to reclaim waste and the wide array of finished products and services you can provide from them is a vast undertaking. You can do it all, but you have to build a road map for yourself and know exactly where your going. You have to go on a vision quest to learn to see the big picture. I ask myself, what is the ultimate goal that wraps all of my other goals into one? Construction is the ultimate goal for CWTE because it offers the most uses for captured resources and because everyone needs a home base from which to operate. Once we have the material recovery infrastructure in place, CWTE can build modular off grid homes. These homes are made out of recycled bottle glass cement and are 3D printed. Home owners can design the textures and shapes of the their home. No two homes are alike which means CWTE Homes are visionary homes that reflect the character of their dwellers. Thank you to my folks Ann and Mike Richardson, my kind and loving parents, for investing resources needed for me to employ Albert Harris and Amethyst Sands to build Captured Waste To Energy virtually. My process for creating Captured Waste to Energy, was to envision a path into and though waste to energy so that I would know exactly what the end game would be. This knowing that I attained from putting in many nights of imagineering ( engineering concepts in the mind) before bed, would instill the confidence in me needed to solder on. About seven years ago, I started reaching out to web designers because I wanted to create a social network to build an online community to support the waste to energy infrastructure in our country. I never made progress then because life got in the way. This year i saw my opportunity and went after it. Together, myself, Al, and Amethyst have created a good solid functioning website and online community infrastructure. With is, it is our goal to gather a community of recyclers here who can put their heads together to solve all of the recycling industry's challenges on the path to Zero Waste. I'll look forward to meeting you along this path. Thanks again for your participation in the Captured Waste To Energy Community and social network.
