Grand Central Terminal in New York City is already sort of a shrine to sustainability, what with all the mass transit, but lately they've been installing CFLs and, evidently, taping internet videos with MarketWatch to demonstrate how green their recycling program is.
One question, though -- at 1:59 the spokesman says that a newspaper that he won't name demanded that lids be put on the recycling bins so that people couldn't reuse newspapers.
Evidently about a fifth of discarded newspapers were being fished out of the recycling bins and reused. Said unnamed newspaper was so steamed about the loss of sales that they demanded (and ponied up the cash for) the installation of lids on the bins!
The spokesman himself said that the lids resulted in one ton more waste.
That's... not... green!
Which newspaper is this? Let's find out, shall we? Video below:
