Seems that South Africa has good potential for solar energy due to space and the fact that we still rely too much on coal to produce energy

Clean Break » Blog Archive » Something to sneeze at: unbleached, 100 per cent recycled tissue latest sign of environmental progress in paper industry | EnviroJMS | Scoop.it

I received a box of tissue in the mail last week, which would seem an odd thing to receive, but as someone who writes about “green” technology and product trends, I get a lot of unsolicited and strange stuff. This particular package came from Cascades, the Quebec paper products manufacturer. It was tissue that is unbleached, 100 per cent recycled, and manufactured with wind power offsets. The tissue looks strange, mind you, but surprisingly it’s pretty soft on the schnoz.
