Happy Arbor Day!

If you’re thinking about planting a tree, here is a good article to read first. It’s entitled “The Lost Forests of America” by Charles C. Choi at Live Science.

Trash talk

Okay, it’s not really trash day (at least for me) but I’ve seen a few articles on the topic and so…

Let’s start with “How Big Is That Widening Gyre Of Floating Plastic” by Carl Bialik at the Wall Street Journal. Good Question!

Need an example of it here in the United States? Check out “Sea of Trash” by Donovan Hohn at the New York Times.

To learn more about the North Pacific Garbage Gyre, listen to the “Pacific Ocean Gyre Filled With Plastic Trash” podcast over at Earth and Sky.

Or if you rather learn about it at the movies, check out the link to ” SXSW FILM: Garbage Dreams” from Adda Birnir at Inhabitat.

Reuse, Reduce and Recycle!
