A quick post from me (Tom) today from San Francisco, where I’m visiting our US office, enjoying this wonderful, and suprisingly green city.
Recycling takes on an altogether more manic edge here, where money is offered to people who collect bottles or cans. People get 5c or 10c for each bottle/can they collect, spawning a small army of recyclers. It has huge benefits – the park after a sunny Sunday is picked clean of valuable materials that is then re-used. But it also creates problems, as is mapped out in this interesting video.
Here’s a great meta site we discovered today that collates all the green blogs out there, there’s so much information here it’s hard to know where to start. Also, the Queen continues to be Bright and Green Queen.
