Green Cities - Green Transportation

 -- Quote of the Day -- 

"The journey is not about helping ourselves, but about helping others. We do best when we use our own skills to make a positive difference in the lives of others. When we do this, we bring enjoyment, hope and fulfillment to others, but we also find that we enjoy the journey more than we ever could have imagined.” 

~ Dave Lieber

 -- Positive News -- 

In Bejing, subway services now offer passengers the option of paying for their travel through recycling plastic bottles via onsite kiosks. 

This is a fantastic way to encourage recycling to go mainstream, to help individuals who struggle financially and to keep the streets clean. Imagine a group of youth who's pockets are empty but they want to go to an event that is too far away to walk to. So they look around them, pick up some litter and take it to the nearest subway station to deposit the bottles in a kiosk and get a ticket for where they want to go. This could help young or single parents, students, the homeless, the elderly... and what better way to encourage keeping the city clean?
