The need for sustainable disaster relief
from The Boston Globe
At the smallest level, we know not to use a bath towel one time before we toss it in the laundry. We teach our kids to turn off the faucet when they brush their teeth. As a society, we readily embrace the need to recycle our soda cans and water bottles. The same effort to conserve limited and fragile resources needs to be applied to disaster relief, so that we don't continually increase our carbon footprint by helping victims of the very same elevated carbon footprint.
