The only green job that I know of is the one I CREATED.

I scrounge around at night and raid the various trash bins around town (gas stations, self-car washes, other misc. places) retrieving plastic, glass bottles, and aluminum cans for cash. Here in Cali we have CRV on such items. Per pound it fetches .95 for plastic, 1.57 for aluminum, and .10 for glass. Made 27 bucks today for 4 hrs work 5 bucks for gas no freaking TAX. Of course this only supplements my retirement money.

That might be considered a “green” job, but I consider your recycling of plastic, glass and aluminum to be you taking responsibilty for yourself.

You are supplementing your income, and I give you ^ 5s for that!

I see many older people on the freeway on/off ramps begging for money. I wish they would be as responsible and creative for themselves as you are.
