[GreenYes] Re: RecycleBank


There is money to be made from recycling. In Malaysia, recycling has
been used to raised funds by some schools to buy equipment they want.
Some charity organizations here run monthly collection sites to collect
recyclables to raise funds.

The point is, whether you reward or do not reward for recycling, there
is going to be consumption. People are motivated by rewards to act and
will make conscious efforts to recycle with that in place. "Monkey see,
monkey do"; once the adults start doing it, the children will follow;-)
