Ford And McDonald's Join Forces To Save The Planet
Ford and McDonald's have teamed up to do something about the millions of pounds of what's called coffee chaff, the dried skin of the bean that naturally comes off during the roasting process. The two discovered there's a way to convert that chaff into a durable material capable of reinforcing certain vehicle parts.

It works like this: the chaff has to be heated to high temperatures under low oxygen and then mix it with plastic and other additives, which turns it into pellets. The pellets can then be formed into various shapes. Examples include headlamps housings and other interior and under the hood components, all of which meet quality specifications.

City Hauls in Over a Tonne of Invasive Goldfish - Goldfish are an invasive species in Alberta that can outcompete native fish if released into the wild. They’ve been in the isolated Lacombe Lake Park for decades, but were only spotted in Edgewater in 2015 and in Ted Hole last spring. That sparked concern, as those ponds had a sewer link to the Sturgeon River. The city broke out the pesticides on the advice of Alberta Environment after nets, electricity and winter’s icy grasp failed to eliminate the invaders.
