Too often, the news stories that relate to environmentalism and climate change nowadays are laced with negative or worrisome overtones. However, it needs to be pointed out that not all green news being shared is bad news.
To prove my point, I’ve decided to share a few links to green news stories I’ve noticed in the last couple days online that are positive. Check them out to see what I mean:
The Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) has launched a call for submissions for its second annual Community Grant Program
(From: Treehugger.com) It’s always good to see large emitters of greenhouse gases take responsibility and work to cut their emissions, even if they are not forced to do so by law (yet).
(From: Gigaom.com) The more sunlight a solar cell can convert into electricity, the cheaper the solar power. Companies like IBM are turning to new materials to try to break efficiency barriers for solar cells.
(From WorldGreen.org) During a recent drop-off mission at a local Goodwill branch, I found out that they are now accepting computers for recycling – at no cost! I was also pleasantly surprised to learn that since 2004, Dell and Microsoft have partnered with Goodwill to recycle all brands of computers and entertainment products.
The good news about all of this good news…IS THAT THERE IS MORE OF IT OUT THERE!! I plan to find as much of it as I can and continue sharing with my readers on a weekly basis (minimum) going forward.
IF YOU HEAR OF OR KNOW ABOUT GOOD GREEN NEWS…TELL ME ABOUT IT! Either leave a comment or send me an e-mail by using the link on the contact section to the right of this article.
