I live on “the Hill” in Boulder, Colorado, home to a couple thousand CU students. Twice a year, when they move in and move out, all the alleys are full of six-month old Urban Outfitters and Target stuff, much of it brand-new. In between those six month eco-debacles, many of the yards are littered with red solo cups. And so it is that I laugh, then cry, when I think of how youth is supposed to be rebellious, idealistic—of how we need a Green Generation. But then I read something like this, on Treehugger.com, and I remember the thousands upon thousands of thoughtful, mindful, eco-reponsible young’uns who are trying to minimize their negative impact on our put-upon Earth.
