[GreenYes] Re: Cradle to grave articles in Philly Inquirer


In late July and early August of 1995, The Philadelphia Inquirer ran a
series by environmental reporter Mark Jaffe that was an excellent job of
nuts and bolts journalism tracing each major commodity from disposal to
re-birth.

You can find them by going to http://www.Philly.com, then clicking the
Inquirer section, then doing an archives search for ³Mark Jaffe recycling².
You may need to prod the search engine with ³7 days and older.² You will
need to hunt through the list of references, but they¹re all there and
they¹re bunched together.

These articles can only be read in full if you buy them. But they are
wonderful reading and well-worth the money (I have no idea where my
originals are).
