Comments

Doug Bailey

Planet Aid has been in this country for 10 years and has faced repeated and thorough scrutiny from the US Media, legitimate investigative reporters, state Attorneys General, the IRS, the USDA, local, state, federal regulating authorities. Nothing has come of it. Its finances are independently audited and its transactions are entirely transparent, unlike many other organizations in the clothes recycling business. Even the vaunted Salvation Army -- which belongs to the Universal Church -- is exempt from filing financial disclosures because of its religious affiliation. The one point you acknowledge that Planet Aid could be affecting the market share of other such organizations is precisely why these negative stories get lazily repeated in the press. Only 15 percent of the clothes in the country get recycled so there should be ample room for many companies competing in the business of recycling old clothes. And yet because a few big operations have enjoyed the market all to themselves, they get quite perturbed when organizations like Planet Aid come into a community and compete with them. There's no mystery to Planet Aid, unless you subscribe to a paranoid conspiracy theory.

We were able to get rid of Planet Aid collection boxes in 2006 from the City of Adrian through our zoning ordinances. However, similiar boxes, only blue from the IICD school in Dogwagiac, MI, are showing up in many other areas in Lenawee Country. I am waging a campaign to eliminate these collection boxes. If anyone has had successes at that and has ideas, please let me know. Thanks, Greg DuMars

We are having bunper stickers made up & are going to place them on the sides of all planet aid boxes we find indicating that the clothes are being SOLD to people in the countries they claim to be supporting. I saw 1st hand a store in Mozambique, one of many, that sells the donations to the poor. They do NOT give these clothes away.

複数の政府関係者が明らかにした。外交安全保障政策で助言を得るためとしているが、政府の役職に野党関係者を起用するのは極めて異例だ。国会対策で焦点となる公明党との関係強化を模索する狙いもあるようだが、民主、公明両党間の正式ルートで協議した痕跡はあまり見えず、“民公”接近につながるかどうかは微妙だ。
関係者によると、高野氏の起用は、藤村官房長官が高野氏に「外交機能を強化したい」と打診した。政府高官は3日、「外交関係のアドバイザーだ。国連平和維持活動(PKO)の問題も含め、広く意見をうかがう」と説明した。ただ、政府内にも「公明党とのパイプ強化を狙ったものだろう」との見方が強い。

ティンバーランド

ティンバーランドカナダのケント環境相は12日、先進国に温室効果ガスの排出削減義務を課した京都議定書から正式に離脱することを明らかにした。主要メディアが報じた。
 ティンバーランド同環境相は「わが国は京都議定書から正式に離脱する法的権利を行使する」と述べた。
