    New evidence presented by Tel Aviv University in Israel suggests that our early ancestors recycled flint and bone to re-use in utensils.

    Emerald Robinson: Researchers at Tel Aviv University in Israel say that recycling actually began with early hominids. They say that our predecessors used discarded or broken tools made out of flint and/or bone to make new utensils, and evidence suggests that early hominids were recycling as early as 1 million years ago and included groups in Spain, Italy, Israel, and North Africa.
