The Suwa Basin, in the Nagano Prefecture, Japan is home to mineral springs as well as to precision machining companies and metal plating facilities. All of these are thought to contribute to the high concentration of gold in their wastewater sludge. The sewage treatment plant is a modern day urban mine extracting more than 4 pounds of gold from each ton of the fly ash that it produces from processing wastewater!

Once of the 3 R's, Reuse is to use an item more than once. This includes conventional reuse where the item is used again for the same function, and new-life reuse where it is used for a new function. By taking useful products and exchanging them, without reprocessing, reuse help us save time, money, energy and resources. In broader economic terms, reuse offers quality products to people and organizations with limited means, while generating jobs and business activity that contribute to the economy. It can also turn unwanted items into great, useful and beautiful alternatives.

Every year, around 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. That's a lot of bags. So many that over one million bags are being used every minute and they're damaging our environment. They are difficult and costly to recycle and most end up on landfill sites where they take around 300 years to photo degrade. They break down into tiny toxic particles that contaminate the soil and waterways and enter the food chain when animals accidentally ingest them.
Sewage: The New Black Gold

We’re already extracting biogas from sewage and spreading treated sewage solids on farms and open space, so it’s also possible to run our cars on biofuel from sewage, too. Specifically, running them on sewage grease. An enormous amount of grease enters our sewer systems - about 495 million gallons annually in the USA alone. Most of it gets captured and collected at sewage treatment plants.

If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a big surprise because the whole place will probably be littered with plastic plates, cups and utensils left behind by lazy picnickers.

Humans pollute the air in many ways, but the single most contaminating activity is mining for gold. According to the EPA, mercury pollution from trash incineration, hazardous waste collection, and mercury mining combined still does not add up to half the total amount of mercury pollution made by gold mining. After the metal has been mined, approximately 63 percent is used in jewelry, 21 percent as coins, 15 percent in industrial use, and the other 1 percent in dental. So anything we can do to reduce this pollution is a welcomed activity.

The quest for alternative energy is the gold rush of the twenty-first century. And as with any gold rush, the companies that sell miners their picks and shovels are the ones with the best chance of success. FirstLook is that kind of company. Instead of digging tools, it sells detailed reports to new-energy entrepreneurs. Those reports show just how much wind or sunshine an area is likely to receive, based on years’ worth of meteorological data.

Hundreds of climbers have been drawn to Mount Everest by the challenge of climbing to the top of the world. All these hikers rely on oxygen because the air at the summit has only one-third of the oxygen found at sea level. Over the years, hundreds of bottles piled up along with discarded climbing gear and other trash. It was common practice for climbers to dump gear to save weight on the way down.
