Sustainable Georgia Roundup
New Solution: Cox Enterprises’ Golden Isles Conservation Center in Nahunta is using new technology to break down tires into their original components, all of which can be repurposed. The center, which has the capacity to remove the equivalent of five tons of tires from landfills and waterways every day, has also made a $5-million positive impact on Georgia’s economy.
Affordable, Green Housing: The new Mallalieu Pointe development in East Point is one of the first affordable housing developments in the area projected to earn LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. The $13.5-million facility, near the East Point MARTA station, will offer 67 mixed-income apartments along with ground-level retail and commercial space.
Historical Papers: The Ray C. Anderson papers, covering the years 1947 to 2012, are now available at the Georgia Historical Society Research Center in Savannah and online. Anderson was a pioneer in the sustainability movement and founder of Interface floor coverings.
