Green around town

Today I was at our local zoo and saw many green projects that they have put into place. The automatic sinks and soap dispensers, the air hand dryers, the map recycling bins but most amazing of all... they are selling compost made from the animal waste at the zoo! (Not to mention they have paper made of the elephant waste in the gift shop) I love the fact they are being proactive in the disposable of the animal's waste and at the same time educating the visitors about the benefits of compost use and composting. (search Gardening Renaissance on facebook for more information on composting and sustainable gardening methods; also if you are in the Columbia SC area take one of the informative courses they will be offering!)

Have you seen any greening taking place around you and your community? If so, what was it? If not, what would you like to see?
