    I would really like to see more ways to reduce the amount of items that end up in the landfills. I would like to hear more towns that are going eco-friendly by introducing ways their residents can get on board in creating green neighborhoods. Have towns start by using more solar, adding more native plants all around the town and in turn it will help our bee and butterfly populations. More towns need to start by banning certain items like plastic straws, plastic shopping bags and replacing them with fabric bags. I would love to read about companies here in the United States that are coming up with ways that make our environment a cleaner one.

    Plastic roads sound interesting to me. I also noticed how have it set up for ease of underground piping and wiring. Wouldn't it be great if they could find a way to use solar heating to keep roads warm enough that snow does not stick to the road. Imagine the savings with salt, sand and our vehicle not rusting underneath.

    Please tell me if I should recycle or trash potato chip tubes like Pringles that have a paper outside but a metallic looking inside? What about salt shakers that have a paper tube, but a metal bottom and a plastic top?

    What happened to the reuse of ground up tires combined with asphalt or cement for our roads? I thought we were also making rubber mats out of ground up tires. I have 5 recycled rugs made of recycled tires.

      Tires are now being recycled into creating renewable clean energy at an excellent price point; roads can use many other additives including plastic. By the way, the story of slippery plastic/asphalt roadways was debunked.

    I'm interested in the plastic roads. Are they hollow to allow heated pipes to be installed to eliminate the use of harsh chemicals used during the winter months (which my car would appreciate) and how would they provide any type of traction?
