PLASTICS RECYCLING: NOW MORE THAN EVER

Could recycled plastics be mixed with bioplastics in forming new products. Transition Vancouver is looking for ways to veer towards a carbon neutral earth.

Here is the way the town of Curitiba recycles in Brazil. More about the green city of Curitiba, Brazil. In this picture, the categories are paper, plastic, metal, glass and organics. Jamie Lerner initiated a sorting program over 10 years ago where people went through the waste to sort garbage, but here we are seeing the way they have evolved their waste system. Notice there is no trash can. Everything sorts into these 5 categories. Jaime Lerner sings of the city on TED.


Totem Salmon, Life Lessons from Another Species

totem_salmonBook: Totem Salmon by Freeman House, Life Lessons from another Species. Great read.

Poetic writing, beautifully describes the salmon lifecycle. Awakened in me a love of ancient wild salmon.

Book Review: House found himself banding with other like-minded citizens in an
effort to bring the once-prolific runs back.
Their organization fought for curbs on logging in the watershed and more restrictions for the way timber can be harvested (buffer zones along streams, for example). They planted vegetation on the banks to provide shade and added structure to the river for protection.

Totem Salmon is House’s memoir of
river stewardship. It’s also a blueprint for grassroots environmental
action. And finally, it is a well-crafted and lyrical piece of writing
that treats a regional problem with personal perspective and candor. –Langdon Cook
