This statement could also be a shorthand for the "Design for and Design from Recycling" guide. This guide was developed as part of PolyCE and was presented at the workshop.
It contains practical advice for product designers and includes the following basic statements in abbreviated form:
1. Few common types of plastic should be used so that as much of it as possible can be recycled
2. potentially environmentally harmful product components or additives should be used as little as possible, anD if they are, then as easily removeable as possible
3. Use recycled materials
4. Material combinations/compounds should be chosen so that individual materials can be easily separated
