Of course, let's not forget the first "R" in "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle". The greenest CD spindle is the CD spindle that you don't buy. It's probably better to use as few CDs and DVDs as possible and to buy a big spindle that lasts years for those that you do use instead of buying a bunch of small ones. Not that CD spindles are a huge environmental problem compared to other things, but it's all about having the right mindset and applying it to everything, big and small.

While this DIY tip might not be useful to everybody, it shows the right kind of thinking
