      First up this week, plastic waste is piling up in America's landfills, but there's a solution: bioplastics. Correspondent Dan Goldstein tells us how these products are made, who's helping to put them in wide use among consumers and how they can help both the environment and the economy. Dan also shows us why some people are concerned about both the production and disposal of bioplastics, and what the industry is doing about it. Next, baseball fans have a lot of fun and consume a lot of food at major league games, but they also produce a lot of trash. Correspondent Lee Patrick Sullivan reveals the Seattle Mariners' novel solution to this problem and the surprising results it achieved. And what's hot at the beach this year? How about a solar-powered bikini. The two-piece suit comes with a 5 Volt USB port to charge a cell phone, an mp3 player or a camera. And coming soon for guys, trunks that can power a custom cozy for cooling a single beer. Then, as the father of our country, George Washington was known as a forward thinker and an innovator. Now, visitors to the George Washington Birthplace National Monument in Virginia can experience that same spirit when they visit a building that is heated and cooled by a geothermal heat pump. Correspondent Josh Zepps follows each step as National Park Service workers complete this archeologically sensitive engineering project inside and outside the Memorial House, near the site of Washington's birth in 1732. Finally, in an exclusive interview, U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu tells energyNOW! anchor Thalia Assuras that energy security concerns may help the Keystone XL oil-sands pipeline win approval. The proposed pipeline, currently under review by the U.S. State Department because it crosses the nation's border with Canada, would bring crude from Alberta's oil sands to refineries on the U.S. Gulf coast. Environmentalists have staged a two-week protest outside the White House to persuade President Obama to block the Keystone XL pipeline. There have been hundreds of arrests, including including NASA climate scientist James Hansen and actress and environmental advocate Daryl Hannah.

                      As the father of our country, George Washington was known as a forward thinker and an innovator. Now, visitors to the George Washington Birthplace National Monument in Virginia can experience that same spirit when they visit a building that is heated and cooled by a geothermal heat pump. Special Correspondent Josh Zepps follows each step as National Park Service workers complete the archeologically sensitive engineering project inside and outside the Memorial House near the site where Washington was born in 1732. Homeowners can get similar systems installed on their own property and qualify for federal tax breaks to help cover the cost. Josh interviews Jon Jarvis, director of the National Park Service, who explains how the government went about putting modern efficiency equipment on the historic building while respecting its 18th Century heritage. Josh also talks to chief engineer Mike Strasburg, who discusses how the system will be installed without interfering with historic artifacts that may be buried on the property. HVAC Specialist Rich Abernathy tells how the equipment will be place inside the home without unnecessarily cutting through walls and floors. Once the drilling and geothermal system are complete, Josh tours the building now that its has air-conditioning for the first time.
