Summary
Civet Cat Coffee- At an illegal Indonesian market, these Civet cats could sell for their meat, fur, or their musk, used for perfume. But alive in the wild, they are increasingly valuable as the key to the world's most expensive coffee, Kopi Luwak, or Civet Coffee. Thames Gateway- The Thames Gateway in east London will be home to the Olympic games in 2012. It's an area that's undergoing massive transformation, with a strong emphasis on green industries. Green Island- For decades, thousands of political dissidents were imprisoned on Taiwan's Green Island. Today, thousands of carefree tourists flock to the lush island with its coral reefs and spectacular marine Life. But this diving oasis is under threat--mainly from the tourists themselves. Plug-in Car- Japanese car manufacturer, Toyota, has a long history of hybrid vehicle development. Its Prius was the world's first mass-produced hybrid vehicle. The company maintains its commitment, currently running government-certified road tests on its new plug-in hybrids. Green Gift Company- At international gift showcase, the Birmingham Spring Fair, a company selling unusual green gifts drew a lot of interest. The biodegradable packaging on Grobox Gardens says it all. It's a garden in a box--simply plant, add water and in a little over a month, you could have a garden of flowers, fruit or vegetables to enjoy. China Pandas To Spain- Drop in to your local zoo and you're bound to see exotic animals from the other side of the globe. It's all part of a worldwide cooperation to conserve the species as well as giving us the pleasure of seeing these diverse animals. But what are the sheer logistics of sending an elephant to Berlin, a rhino to Budapest, or a panda to Madrid? Recently, China found out, when it fulfilled its promise to send not one, but two giant pandas to Madrid zoo
