A Greener Indiana

Everybody can do something to make a greener Indiana

I'm starting a little grass roots campaign to get as many of our great network of Indianapolis sustainability folks to consider joining Google+. I know you have 112 things you'd rather be doing than joining another social network but hear me out.

Starting in April, I'll be adding a spin off to our Green Hour model. On Google+ they have a feature called 'Hangout'. It's a free video conferencing feature that allows up to 10 people at a time to video chat. 

My plan is to hold at least one, lunchtime sustainability chat per month. Like the Green Hour, they will be topical centering around a special guest and their sustainability efforts.

The reason that I'm so excited about this opportunity is that it will allow us to take the conversation to a national (if not international) level.

So please consider joining us on Google+. Add Irvington Green Initiative to your 'Circles'. Definitely help me spread the word and keep up the good work.

I’m writing as an archivist who needs to recycle old VHS, Betamax and cassette tapes.  I do know the tapes themselves are toxic when burned (which is what will happen to them if we toss them in the trash in Indianapolis).  Several places in town used to recycle them, but [...]

Scrapping the scrap

Renee,

Current market conditions have scrap prices tumbling to historic lows.  How will these conditions affect the city’s contract with Covanta (if it goes through)?  For many items that become scrap, costs outweigh revenues.  I understand domestic copper mines are stockpiling rather than selling at these prices.  Any idea how [...]
