[GreenYes] GRRN and zero waste in Los Angeles Times op-ed
The following paragraph appears in an op-ed
piece today in the Los Angeles Times, in a piece
that is otherwise critical of the non-greenness of
the Salt Lake Olympics.

"Recycling is also cited by Olympic officials
as an environmental triumph for the Games.
Strong objections from the GrassRoots
Recycling Network and other national green
organizations prompted Olympic organizers
to improve plans to achieve "zero waste"
through recycling and composting. Coca-Cola
Co., a leading Olympic sponsor, contributed
extra funds for an advanced, two-bin recycling
system that could conceivably eliminate 90%
of the waste generated by the Winter Games."
