A second chance

(Continued)

Recycling has proven to be very successful, but in today’s mainstream society we still regard too many things as disposable. Electronic devices, furniture and houses are routinely thrown out or torn down. The cost and inconvenience of repairing things serves as justification for our thirst for something “new.’’ Going Green is the current, necessary mentality to ensure the sustainability of our environment. Green is good, but old red brick and mortar mills are good, too. Haverhill once relied on these mighty structures for our economic prosperity. Many years later, we still do.
