3 Green Things for 2011

To celebrate the New Year, here is a round-up of interesting green tidbits that I collected near the end of 2010:

NowPlayingNashville.com started a page dedicated to those events and attractions in and around Middle Tennessee that have positive environmental significance. Currently, it has not been updated for this year, but no doubt it will be soon. 2010 saw a lot of green activities, so hopefully 2011 will have even more.

Newsweek rated the Top 10 green businesses of 2010. While there seems to be some controversy over some of the companies that made the list, over all, the information they gathered showed that there are corporations paying attention to how they affect the planet, and that is good. Since Associated Content recently became the Yahoo! Contributor Network, it was personally satisfying to see them on the list.

In downtown Franklin, TN they have implemented solar powered trash compactors that also have an attached bin for cans and bottles to be recycled, manufactured by BigBelly Solar. These compactors are reported to reduce the negative aspects of waste removal by as much as 80%.
