Green Bins, Green City

mcm3

New to the area, I did a double take when I saw these bins, identical to the ones scattered across campus. I knew Macalester strived for sustainability, but I hadn’t known the goal was bigger than the school. The bins seemed to exist comfortably alongside booths labelled “Holistic Health Farms” and the like. The fact that the bins are easily overlooked as commonplace items all the more show me how significant they are. The area, one bin at a time, is becoming a futuristic, sustainable utopia… or at least, it’s trying.
