Improvements....

Here is an article about corporations going green.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7132793.stm

It looks like Google is trying to do things that the environmentally oriented posters on this forum would recommend.

"There are more bicycles than cars, casually dressed executives use bikes to traverse the huge campus, carpet and sofas are made without PVC, paints without volatile organic compounds, and cafeteria food bought from local growers are what you notice during a visit."

I think it's great that some corporations are "going green" since consumers don't seem to be willing to make any kind of real changes or cuts. But I will be surprised if most corporations make truly significant changes in the absence of government regulations.
