Dunnigan rest stop using four hundred cubic feet of 100 percent recycled polypropylene plastic, and Africa's largest urban slum having 15 flushing toilets thanks to a local resource of discarded plastic bottles, are great examples of reincarnated plastic.

If there is something more impressive than Joel's academic résumé, it's his story. Rewind a few years and we'd be meeting a different Joel: a high-school student reeling from the discovery of his undocumented status just a few weeks shy of graduation. Facing a new set of financial roadblocks, he would no longer be a college-bound senior but one facing a life of uncertainty.
San Francisco's cultural legacy of identifying a need and then fulfilling it with a service is anchored by another Yahoo like web site, with a listing of San Francisco Cannabis Clubs. And, if you don't think there is a local or national market, check out their advertising rates.
