Summary:
The Dominican Republic is using creative ideas to help protect the environment. Just outside the capital, Santo Domingo, a cement factory generates the energy it needs by burning car tires instead of oil. And, with a little help from some worms, a hotel in the tourist destination of Punta Cana uses biomass to power its laundry service. The Caribbean country is pursuing the ambitious target of reducing its carbon dioxide emissions by 25% in the coming years -- and is receiving support from the International Climate Initiative.
