How can I reuse or recycle spark plugs?

Comments Off on How can I reuse or recycle spark plugs?

We’ve had an email from Scott, asking: Is there any use for old sparkplugs? As someone who barely knows what a sparkplug looks like let alone does, I’m not really in a position to answer this question. Google tells me that they can be cleaned up again but it’s not recommended (although disclaimer: all the people talking about it are performance/engine obsessives, so they might be pushing for more than the average person)

How can I reuse or recycle old rubber stamps?

Comments Off on How can I reuse or recycle old rubber stamps?

We’ve had an email from Lise, asking: How can rubber stamps be recycled? I found a box full in the stationery cupboard from two department name changes ago! Given the department name comment, I imagine these are custom ones, not generic “approved” or date stamps – I’d put the latter on eBay or Freecycle/Freegle because they’re still very useful in their own right. The former ones will be less reusable but I’d have loved to play with them when I was a kid (my childhood roleplaying was surprisingly bureaucratic; when I used to play ’school’, I spent the whole time working out class lists & timetables for said classes) (really).

Comments Off on Fighting to Keep the Green and the Great in New York City’s Greener, Greater Building Plan

Mayor Michael Bloomberg at the launch of the 1,000 Supers Green Building Training Initiative photo via seiu.org Last Friday, Mayor Bloomberg announced that he was abandoning one of the most ambitious components of his Greener, Greater Buildings Plan.
