Adbongo is going gold. That’s right, we’re ditching paper for the shiny, sparkly stuff. Why? The answer is simple: the value of gold is increasing while the purchasing value of fiat currency is decreasing. Plus, gold can’t be counterfeited, it’s not so easy to burn, and it can be molded into a sculpture of a [...]

DALLAS, Texas —At a time when the U.S. Congress and President Obama are considering investing $850 billion to create jobs, a recently announced study clearly proves that business incubators need to be part of the job creation equation.
According to a research study conducted for the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration, business incubators provide communities with significantly greater results at less cost than do any other type of public works infrastructure project.
We have created initial plans for an eco-business park. Ancillary businesses on-site will take in the recycling facility’s outputs to change them into usable products; each business will be consciously developed based on its ability to use excess materials from the recycling facility and other neighboring businesses so that the park will function as a sustainable organism complete within itself. As the business incubator, Adbongo will strap rocket boosters on the businesses within this park.
Over the last twenty years, as we’ve come to understand the detriment our happy-to-consume society inflicts upon the environment, many households and communities have heeded the recycling call. We applaud this fact! It is wonderful that so many have taken personal responsibility for the care of the earth in the face of a problem that sometimes feels overwhelming. With our model, we hope to make it easier for all of us to take care of the planet. We plan to rehabilitate and beautify the old landfill areas, and we will offer education and training on-site and for the community so that we might share the technologies we’ll be using with interested communities across the globe.
