save the green planet
In a revolutionary leap that could transform solar power from a marginal, boutique alternative into a mainstream energy source, MIT researchers have overcome a major barrier to large-scale solar power: storing energy for use when the sun doesn't shine.
Since it's difficult to be exhaustive in a mere blog post I will focus on a single issue that embraces lots of others.
The Zero Waste Alliance is a non-profit partnership of universities, government, business and other organizations working to develop, promote and apply Zero Waste strategies.
Our Mission is to support organizations in the creation of a more sustainable future.
Our Objective is to provide improved profitability, competitiveness and environmental performance through the development and implementation of practices that lead to the reduction and elimination of waste and toxics.
"Zero Waste cuts costs, improves competitiveness and improves environmental performance."
The point is that a society should not have waste. If it's not reusable, recyclable or you cannot compost it, you should not produce it. Period. More information is about to come, I'm in a bit of a hurry right now, I just want to keep my promise and give my contribution. Here it goes. Print them out, spread the word. Recycle. ^_^
I have been waiting for something like this for a long time.
Blog Action Day
I even thought of organising something similar, but I've seen too many good ideas gone rotten, because they needed time and preparation to do them well, and this is done extremely well.
This is the idea:
On October 15th, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind - the environment. Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.
