London Going Green!

London, like most places, is making an effort to recycle more, cut carbon emissions, conserve energy and eat locally.  Check it out…..

A “mini-dump” or recycling area in a central London neighborhood.


Including bins for old clothes,books and small electrical appliances.



London’s double-decker busses use green power! “Another red bus going green for LONDON”

London’s power outlets turn on and off to avoid “vampire energy”.

A charming neighborhood farmer’s market.  Of course Europeans have traditionally food shopped that way.

    I didn’t know the reason for switches on power outlets…good pictures of what is happening in London. I wonder how Paris compares? David and I leave on Wednesday. Love to you and Peter, Tudy

    • Paris has always been extremely energy conscious, but neither city recycles as much as we do. They are moving that way fortunately though. But, wow do they smoke a lot!
      Have a wonderful time in London. How fun to be with your granddaughters!


  3. Europe is far ahead of us.


  4. Wow! They’ve come a long way since my visit in 1989. And boy do we have a way to go. Thanks for sharing, Betsy. So many clever ideas.


Let me know what you think!
