Waste Reduction & Laughter


-- Quote of the Day --

“…Laughing makes fresh air into the lungs, oxygen enters the brain so we can thing clearer; it is a muscle relaxer… and every muscle in the body gets a workout - it is very much like an aerobic exercise. The thing about it though is that you don’t have to go out and buy running shoes or invest in a rowing machine; you just laugh! ...The 5 stages of grief go like this: acknowledging the loss, learning from the experience, letting go, living and finally laughing. We do indeed learn from those before us – Someone we love dies and it is upsetting, but their spirit is still there and we are left with these wonderful – and not so wonderful – memories. But it is all about attitude…”

~ Allen Klein - Humor Healing Grief

Kudos to Austin Resource Recovery for their initiative in moving towards zero waste!
 
A 30-year plan from Austin Resource Recovery (Texas, USA) was recently released stating their intent to reduce waste in the landfills by 90%.  Use of curbside recycling and yard waste programs, promotion of reuse and drop-off facilities, a new hazardous waste facility and fines for waste generators – are all part of this plan.

Could you imagine having only 10% of the waste generated in such a large area sent to the landfill?

That is huge!
