Inaugurating the Green!

January 19, 2009

With the new administration coming into the White House, there are big events playing out in Washington this week.  Millions of extra visitors are coming to this historic event as the first ever African American President of the United States is inaugurated.

And the District of Columbia is preparing in the greenest of styles. 

The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) is trying to be as green as possible, including a recycled carpet and runner for the platform where the new President will take his oath of office and a plan to scoop up all of the manure from the horses in the parade and sell it to a nearby farm.

“We’re committed to holding an Inauguration that isn’t just the most open and accessible in modern history, but also as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible,” said Kevin Griffis, a spokesman for the PIC.

The PIC has planned to have 6,000 volunteers pick up recycling along the National Mall and the parade route after the day’s events.

The blue recyclable carpet on the platform was installed last Tuesday along with the runner, which has a blue center and red borders. They extend about 725 square yards and were made by employees of the Chief Administrative Office (CAO).

Few previous presidential inaugurations have attempted to take such environmentally friendly steps. But the Chief Administrative Officer, who is appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), has been working to reduce the Capitol’s carbon emissions as part of the “Green the Capitol” project for the past year.

Not bad for a party with an estimated 4 million expected guests.

當蛋白線埋入皮膚後,皮下組織會將蛋白線視為異物,啟動異物反應,因此刺激膠原蛋白生長,且可促進新陳代謝,更新老化肌膚,所以客戶在術後也會發覺膚質變得較透亮白皙。膠原蛋白提拉線像一個“磁力線”一樣,將埋入處附近的肌肉和脂肪固定在原處,不會往下墜,其後會吸引皮下組織往蛋白線集中部位移動,就會逐漸產生提拉的緊實效果。也被用於填充美容的微整形,蛋白線材就好比蓋房子的鋼骨支架,先埋入皮膚當作基底結構,然後再注入好比水泥的玻尿酸或自體脂肪,因為有吸附力不易擴散,就可穩定固定住填充物,讓立體支撐力效果更好。
