Don't get me wrong, I think it's great that GOONJ is doing something productive and useful and recycling creatively. I am a big fan of reduce, reuse, recycle. I love trees, I wash out my ziplock bags and reuse them, and enjoy my Bajaj scooter (and enjoy even more the 90 mpg). BUT, humans don't do things unless they have to. It's not until gas is skyrocketing in price, rippling into increases in food, water, electricity, and everything else in our lives, are people getting serious about conservation and other alternatives to fossil fuels. Chances are, it is finances with drive these types of behaviors.
