Marks & Spencer, the UK's largest clothing retailer, announced Monday that it will unveil a Pounds 200 million (392 million) scheme to become one of the country's greenest retailers. The centerpiece of the company's 100-point action plan is a pledge to become "carbon neutral" by 2012 -- a commitment that would be the equivalent of taking 100,000 cars off the road. Marks & Spencer also aims to stop sending waste to landfill sites by that date.
I really like this concept of carbon-neutrality.
I want to learn as much as possible about as many ways that there are to achieve it.
The process of turning plastic bottles into synthetic clothing appeals to me, because as I must frequently work in the Texas heat in summer, synthetic shirts are exceptionally cool, and, as importantly, synthetic clothes dry very quickly in a clothes drier if even they need to be dried there at all in the first place. Recycling of plastic bottles, then, is an extremely cool thing to do.
Thanks for reading my post.
