Eco-news & share excitement

Wow, it all seems like a world away from what I'm up to when you log onto CNN and the main story is about stock markets tumbling. Hard to read into it, when my lifestyle involves a 5-day-a-week sports job. Looks like the euro could be a little stronger over here though if I'm reading it correctly which I'm not complaining about though :)

Anyway, a great write-up on one of my side-hobbies on CNN at the moment. It's under the amusing headline "Going green? Try solar handbags, wind turbines"

On a side note, and just showing how much the internet is changing how news is passed out, even Reuters now run a page on Even they now store all their useful website articles they've found online for free.

We've been impressed to find out that the Thai government is now offering money to promote recycling - about 1 euro for every kilo of plastic bottles of cans. Pretty decent money over here for the locals, so hopefully it makes a difference. We've been astounded to find out that Ko Phi Phi (the famous island out near where The Beach was filmed) has 50TONS of rubbish per day due to tourists........

The magic number
