Turn the Eiffel Tower Green? via @Care2

Sunday January 1, 2012, 7:36 am Absolutely - it is a great idea - and one that reduces pollution - even if it is just temporary. Paris draws allot of visitors and anything that can make a statement for a healthier living and planet is a good idea in my book. many years ago they had speakers installed on top of the Arc de Triomphe that played the calls of whales - against whaling and as a reminder to conserve our oceans. I was just a teenager at the time but it was very impressionable and the first active thing I witnessed for a better world. It was a stepping stone for my own believes and convictions - so maybe the Eiffel Tower will be the same for someone else. send green star | flag as inappropriate Why is this inappropriate?
