Blackballing the green

What’s the tradeoff when you buy “green” products? If you’re lucky, a few cents on the dollar. Some folks aren’t quite so lucky.

    I find that around here, they are pretty expensive. Interesting because here in the city we started curbside recycling.

    They are amazed because in most cities it has failed miserably. However, we’re getting an 80% response. In my neighborhood, folks aren’t particularly “green” but everyone puts their full recycling container out every week. Which reminds me, I’d better get my stuff out to the curb. (Yikes! There’s freakin’ SNOW out there!)

    We got no snow, but we’re getting a freeze: 25 tomorrow morning, which is a record for this date. And the wind’s been blowing at 30 mph for three days now.

    Little Blue, the Oklahoma City recycle box, is pretty common on my street, which it wasn’t six years ago when I moved in.

    Second-life products are expensive to produce by same reason it’s more expensive to do renovation/refurbishing rather than new construction.More steps in technological process.
