Weekly Compactor: Blogroll Edition

by

thumb-nappycollection.jpg I took an unannounced vacation this week. Please excuse the inconsistency. You’ll be happy to know that ton of rich garblogging carried on in my absensce. In particular, check out these two links:

1. Carrying around your trash for two weeks is a growing trend in New York City. The practice makes both you and others aware of how much waste each of us produces, and adds incentive to make less. Check out this Trash Talk blog from frog design where Debra Keneally is logging her experiences toting trash and where she has amassed an impressive collection of links to allies and others doing the same thing. Note: This is not the last you’ll hear of this genius fad around these parts, just the last you’ll hear of them before the weekend.

2. Keith over at the Temas blog covered two trash-related stories this past week. First, he investigates a new Mexican disposable diaper claiming to be “environmentally friendly”. Next he updates us on another PET recycling project, this one backed by the government of Brazil in an attempt to construct solar water heaters from trash.

    Thanks for the mention, Leila. One tiny clarification: the solar water heater project presently is supported by the government of the state of Paraná (most people know this state for its environmentally progressive capital, Curitiba). The feds are interested in duplicating the example in the rest of the country, though.

    Thanks for the clarification, Keith.
