Reynolds Indiana = Biotown USA

Posted By on September 2, 2007

biotownIt is interesting to see what a small community can do to improve their green footprint on the planet. Folks in the rural farm town of Reynolds Indiana have that opportunity. While I pretend to make changes by trading out my incandescent light bulb for compact fluorescents and run little biodiesel in my efficient car, this community is making a bigger change. For Reynolds Indiana, known as BioTown USA, the goal is to create a model community that is energy self-sufficient. According to the Indiana Agriculture Director Andy Miller, “Our goal is to make Indiana a leader in the future of agriculture, and to do that, we must be progressive in advancing new uses for our products and finding more environmentally-friendly ways to dispose of our byproducts.”

Here’s a segment from Motorweek highlighting what is going on just over the state line.
