[GreenYes] Zero Waste Olympics redux
Vancouver is bidding on the 2010 Winter Olympics. In a plebiscite this month, Vancouver voters will send a signal to the IOC on whether there is popular support for the games. The vote is expected to be evenly split.

The Recycling Council of BC is considering a stream of sessions at its June conference (one month before the IOC decision) that will look at how to make a Zero Waste Olympics.

Gary Liss provided an excellent summary of the SL Olympics on the GRRN website http://grrn.org/olympics/olympics_update_01-21-02.html. I note that this weekend is a big one-year anniversary of the SL Olympics in Salt Lake (http://www.saltlake2002.com/) but there is NO MENTION OF REPORT CARD on how they did on the Zero Waste goal.

Does anyone -- Gary?? -- have a progress report?

Helen.
