[greenyes] Waste, Recycling, Packaging, WEEE & EPR in Latin America

Dear Friends & Colleagues:

One year ago Temas Actuales launched its free monthly e-mail summary of the
consumer and EHS news we post on our website,
<> , and I suggested that Greenyes?rs
interested in Latin American & Caribbean developments regarding waste,
recycling, packaging, WEEE and producer responsibility might wish to sign
up, since the coverage tends to focus heavily on such developments.

Well, a year later, I want to re-issue the invitation, and have listed below
(with links) the news items on these issues you might have missed so far in
2005 by not signing up for the FREE newsletter. Signing up is easy: just
plug in your e-mail in the slot on the left-hand panel of any page on our

For those of you interested in environmental issues other than wastes and
end-of-life (EOL) products, we also have covered during the years such
topics as cell phone towers, carbon credits, underground petrol tanks, use
of sewage sludge, oil spills, chemical safety, mandatory energy efficiency
and labeling, biosafety, solvents, POPs, mining, pesticides, detergents,
environmental licensing, ozone-depleting substances, mandatory environmental
labeling, ecolabeling, environmental crime, motor vehicle emissions,
renewable energy, water conservation, etc.

Best Regards,
