    Madison, Wisconsin is a very green city. In the summer you will see people biking and walking instead of driving. People enjoy activities like sailing in the lakes and hiking instead of spending time inside in the air conditioning watching TV and using a lot of electricity.
    Furthermore, throughout the summer Madison hosts a huge farmers’ market, thus allowing people to purchase local, fresh foods and cutdown on shipping costs, pesticides, and waste.

    Denmark and Copenhaggen, amongst other cities, have begun implementing plants that convert trash to fuel!  They still place emphasis on recycling, but for everything left over they burn the material in “waste-to-energy” plants.
