Vegas goes green

I don't normally think of Las Vegas as the greenest of cities, but it sounds like it's making some serious eco-efforts, including everything from a sustainable Sunday brunch at The Springs Café by Wolfgang Puck to the Las Vegas Convention Center's 66 percent average recycling rate for shows (the press release says it recovers on average 422 tons of cardboard, 250 tons of plastic, 173 tons of carpet padding, 99 tons of mixed paper, 83 tons of various metals and 58 tons of wood annually).

Thanks to Patti Shock for the pointer.
