What's Red Or Blue, And Green All Over

by Alexandra Marvar

August 30, 2008


The DNC and the RNC are respectively making efforts to be the greenest national political conventions in history.

The DNC isn't just running their cars on biofuel (beer); among a slew of Green practices in place this week in Denver, organizers are aiming to keep 85% of the convention's waste out of landfills by recycling, encouraging its 50,000 attendees to compost. 900 volunteers on hand to undertake explaining to people exactly how that's supposed to happen.

And over at the RNC, organizers and politicians will be doing a lot of walking, and using old furniture, while their spokespeople remind us that "The Republican Party is home to Theodore Roosevelt who was the first American president to consider the long-term needs for efficient conservation of natural resources."
