Recycling can be fun!

posted by Kirsten Firminger

I am currently on my honeymoon in Australia (yay!). As I have previously mentioned in my blog about greening amusement parks, my husband is a roller coaster enthusiast. This (of course) means that we have been riding some roller coasters on our fun voyage together down under. And while at Luna Park in Sydney, I ran into these wonderful recycling and trash bins that they use throughout the park. They made me laugh and think to recycle (or feed the clowns thoughtfully, as they say) at the same time, which I think is highly effective at promoting recycling mindfulness. See photos below (make sure to check our their helpful clown suits)!

Off topic a bit, but as a fellow theme park nerd, I thought you might enjoy. As is life, eh?

I own a pallet recycling company and see a lot of other companies
dump their used pallets into their dumpsters or compactors. This is a
waste of a perfectly good used resource. Plastic pallets can be melted
down to create other products. They do not deteriorate in landfills at
all. pallets

There were many more good sessions at the Wisdom 2.0 conference this weekend. The intention of the organizers is to post videos. I'll let you know when. Here are some of my notes from a second panel. How do we use modern, social media technologies — such as this blog — to both further o

Wisdom 2.0
If a zen master were sitting next to the chief technical officer of Twitter, what would they talk about? That sounds like a hypothetical overheared at a bar in San Francisco. But this weekend I saw the very thing at Soren Gordhamer's Wisdom 2.0 conference — named after his book of the same nam
