Mozilla Japan’s Open Source Office

While not explicitly a recycling-centric initiative, there's incredible inspiration to be found in the utilization of freely-available objects many people would relegate to being 'random objects unfit for reuse in other formats'.

There have been plenty of movements in which everyday 'detrius' is retrofitted and reimagined into objects that can be used to better everyday living, but the extent to which Nosigner and Mozilla have documented and made available their process + specifications is remarkable.
