Use recyclable materials. *
[Deleted 'easily' because very few materials are 'easily' recyclable, it's a bit meaningless to say this.]
Source locally whenever you can. Work with locally available materials. *
['Wherever' doesn't read well here, because of the use of the word 'locally' before it 'locally wherever'...have changed it to 'whenever', as well as improving second part to read more clearly]
Make the by-products of today's project the material for tomorrow's. *
[Not sure 'Make' is the right word to start this sentence with. This works: 'The by-products of today's project can be the materials for tomorrow's.]
Your project’s future? Is it made for the bin or made to build upon? *
[Would it be better to say 'product's' rather than 'projects' here and throughout?]
Bio-based is cool, bio-degradable is cooler!
Screws are better than glues: nuts and bolts are even better!
[Changed semi-colon to colon for consistency with other statements]
Reversibility is key: Make everything separable and fit for reassembly.
[Suggestion: 'Reversibility is key: Maintain separable parts fit for reassembly']
Avoid toxins. Save rare materials. * *
[I think 'recover' might be a better word than 'save' here - not 100% sure though?]
Modularity is good! Parts that work as other parts are fun.
Repairing is the greatest kind of making.
[Deleted 'sometimes' as it's not grammatically correct...still not sure about this one]
Can you do more with less? Hack and improve old projects. Substitute something with nothing. *
[I find 'substitute something with nothing' a bit clunky: 'keep it simple' or 'use the bare essentials' are options]
Use common and open standards and tools. Avoid expensive special equipment and approaches. *
Simple and easy to understand is beautiful, social and often more sustainable. *
Collaborate. Find symbioses with other peoples' projects. * *
[Changed order of words for better grammar]
Be open. Enable others to build upon your work. *
Go for a walk in the woods, study how good nature is at circularity. *
