The Garbage Game - Check it Out

If you are interested in sustainability in Hawaii, please check out my good friend Ken Stokes' blog at

The Kauaian Institute.

I discovered a link there for something called The Garbage Game. ‘Tis a great way to play with the interconnections and the indirect consequences of our waste behaviors.

Like most American communities, Kauai spends gazillions to spirit away the detritus of our daily living.
In this game, at least, you get to make personal choices about the fate of your trash, whether you decide to compost your kitchen waste, give up bottled water, or choose cloth diapers over disposable ones, and then take on the role of a sanitation commissioner and help decide where your trash should go for processing: a landfill, another state—or even another continent.
