Tokyo is hoping that this Olympics will be the greenest ever. It’s an ambitious, but very necessary goal given the accusations of excess that surrounds the Olympics.
Medals are to be constructed with recycled materials, some venues from the 1964 Tokyo games are to be reused and all this is to be powered by renewable energy supplies.
Environmentally minded athletes can rest easy with the supplying of cardboard beds for them to sleep on.
Despite some hiccups along the way, the world should be able to look forward to an entralling and sustainable games.
