5 sustainable boondoggles, greenwashing all the way to the bank 25.8.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
From SeaWorlds Cup That Cares to an underground beer fridge, these products are trying to tout green creds that may not exist Painting a green veneer on consumer goods is far from a new marketing tactic. In 1992, the Federal Trade Commission issued its first Green Guide, aimed at squelching greenwashing long before greenwashing was a household word. Its hard to blame marketers, really. Its not that hard to find low-hanging fruit: non-discerning, green-minded consumers, eager to buy bright, shiny new products that will help them lighten their footprint on Mother Earth. Thankfully, the volume of egregiously greenwashed boondoggles has decreased in recent years. But it has not, as we shall see below, been washed away. Weve picked out some of our favorite dubious green products and rated them on a scale of Meh to 100% ...

MCC nod to implement SWM in city 25.8.2014 deccanherald.com
After an inordinate delay for several years, the Mangalore City Corporation (MCC) has at last shown green signal to implement the two package solid waste management system comrpising of collection and transportion of the garbage in 60 wards in the corporation limits. The civic body has signed an agreement on Friday, with the Mumbai based Antony Waste Handling Pvt. Ltd to manage solid waste in the city. Though the State government had approved the first and second package tender almost two years ago, there was dilly-dallying on the part of the MCC and the contractor to sign the agreement. Under the three package SWM scheme, the third package has been already handed over to the Delhi based IL & FS Environmental Infrastructure and Services Ltd which has been operating the waste disposal at landfill site in Pacchhanady. The contractor prepares the manure from waste at the compost unit. Now, with the Corporation making up its mind to implement the scheme in a comprehensive way, the system is expected to bring ...

Inside Addis Ababa's Koshe rubbish tip: where hundreds literally scratch a living 22.8.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
At the end of her journey to trace the life of a typical flip-flop from oilfield to factory to street to trash Caroline Knowles was confronted with the Ethiopian capitals largest landfill site My first sight of Koshe, Addis Ababas giant 50-year-old landfill site, is from the highway. It runs alongside it, and away from the road as far as the eye can see: a giant, murky, grey-brown raised area of partially decomposed rubbish, with occasional bright specks of colour. As my hopes rise from having found it, my heart sinks as I try to take it in. The interpreter I have engaged for this mission through my contacts, a junior academic at Addis Ababa University, is not keen on going ahead. Leaving the taxi and crossing the highway by the bridge, I try to absorb the panoramic view afforded by this elevated viewpoint over the highway. Food comes from some place and a guy is going into the truck and he is injured and they take him to hospital but he died. Also someone else lost their legs in an encounter with a ...
