Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (Your Trash After Midnight)*

For reals? Sweden is importing 800,000 tons of trash each year to generate electricity? And only 4% of their household garbage ends up in landfills? Come on, American entrepreneurial spirit, we need a little waste-to-energy lovin’ over here.

Having been blown away by this article, I sent it to our city’s Chamber of Commerce. Why not do the same in your neck of the woods? Just flip through¬†this directory¬†to find out how to contact your local chamber, and encourage them to use proven, profitable business models that reduce the strain on environmental resources. Who knows, they might actually listen.

*You didn’t really expect me to pass up an ABBA reference, did you?

    Thanks to buddy Jim Cook for pointing us to this story. Not sure if he had anything to do with the ABBA reference…
