The Earth Engineering Center (EEC) at the Earth Institute at Columbia University has helped to launch a company that uses an innovative rewards system to increase household recycling. The company, RecycleBank, operates under the belief that recycling rates go up when people are paid to recycle. With this new program, residents use a recycling bin with an embedded computer chip; garbage trucks are retrofitted to include a scale and a scanner; residents put their recyclables in the bin; the truck scans and weighs the bin, recording the amount each household recycles. Residents receive “RecycleBank Dollars” as rewards, coupons they can use to shop at over 150 partnering businesses, including Starbucks, Home Depot, Whole Foods and Patagonia.

ISA-IPE 2007 Annual Meeting. Chicago, Illinois. Two sessions will commence at 8:30am on Friday 2 March 2007, and carry forward to lunch. The aim of the sessions is to encourage and develop a more comprehensive, multi-disciplinary and challenging understanding of alternative globalizations. The sessions will be facilitated by Robina Bhatti, Robin Broad, Barry Gills, Ruth Reitan, and Hasmet Uluorta. If you wish to assist with the sessions please do so by contacting Barry Gills at firstname.lastname@example.org. The first session (8:30am – 10:15am) is entitled, “Assemblage for Alternative Globalizations”. Its purpose is to provide a diverse grouping of researchers with the opportunity to meet, discuss and build networks of solidarity for research projects pertaining to alternative globalizations. As this networking meeting on alternative globalizations is the first to take place at an annual ISA convention, no papers are solicited nor will there be a panel discussion. Instead, researchers will be given an opportunity to meet one-on-one and/or in small groups to discuss their research. Participants are asked to provide a short (300 word max) summary of their research projects and/or interests as well as contact details to Hasmet Uluorta at email@example.com prior to 30 November 2006. The second session entitled, “Research Planning for Alternative Globalizations” will take place immediately after from 10:30am to 12:15pm. This strategic planning meeting seeks to solicit, from participants, a comprehensive direction for future research on alternative globalizations. If further clarification is required please contact Barry Gills at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ruth Reitan at email@example.com.
