Filed under: Environmental Issues — theotheri @ 9:53 pm

As Congress is trying to pass its watered-down Climate-Change bill, I pass on to you the innovative suggestions coming out of Britain.  I’m sure they are revolutionary:

  • The Church of England is urging Christians to give up using their dishwashers for Lent
  • Manchester City Council has suggested that a local crematorium uses the heat it generates to power its boiler
  • Marks and Spencer, a hugely popular main street department store chain, has launched a range of school uniforms made out of old plastic bottles.

Somehow I’m not sure these are the kind of revolutionary ideas that are going to save our planet.

On the other hand, mabe if we all started to make our clothes out of old plastic…
