"It's not just a good idea, it's the law!"

The speed limit? No recycling! In this story so says San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom who is considering making it illegal to not recycle. While there will not be a recycling police, there is the thought of making it ok for garbage collectors to not pick up garbage that contains recyclables.

What cracks me up is how competitive the Newsom is about recycling, wanting to completely dominate other cities in this respect. Yeah, competition is good.

Hey! Thanks for all the great info. I was browsing through a bunch of green websites and blogs and I came across yours and found it very interesting. There are a bunch of others I like too, like the daily green, ecorazzi and earthlab.com. I especially like EarthLab.com’s carbon calculator (http://www.earthlab.com/signupprofile/). I find it really easy to use (it doesn’t make me feel guilty after I take it). Are there any others you would recommend? Can you drop me a link to your favorites (let me know if they are the same as mine).

Thanks anonymous. I enjoy reading Arduous Blog and Green Bean Dreams as blogs, but most of my time jump around sources of the Main Stream Media such as the NY Times and the SF Chronicle, plus the Guardian.co.uk, I occasionally go to sites like grist.org for more green news.
