Live Nation and Waste Management launch Recycling Rocks campaign

December 8th, 2009

From Green Right Now Reports

Anyone who has ever attended a rock concert knows what an un-green scene is often left when the music stops: litter, bottles or other containers and various other items left strewn about. Now concert promoter Live Nation and Houston-based Waste Management, Inc., are launching a Recycling Rocks campaign to promote and encourage recycling to millions of live music fans across the United States.

The two companies announced a multi-year agreement encompassing Live Nation’s venues, concerts, tickets and online platform. Under the agreement, Waste Management becomes the official waste services and recycling sponsor of 66 Live Nation venues across the country. Waste Management will provide waste assessments to help minimize waste and promote recycling at all Live Nation venues, including concessions and backstage areas. Waste Management said it anticipates developing more recycling and waste diversion programs for Live Nation throughout the course of their collaboration.

My Skip.com expanding the “free trade” marketplace

March 2nd, 2009

Stuff. It’s piling up in our garage. Stealing space in our bathroom closet. Lurking in the attic. We modern homo sapiens gather gadgets, what-nots, mementos and widgets like our forebears gathered nuts.

Except that, in winter, the ancestors ate the nuts. We’re just nuts about our stuff.

Now it’s time to get crazy about sharing that stuff, spreading the wealth, so our burnished treasures can enjoy a second life – just not in our living room!

America’s Freecycle is one way to give it away, it’s been hooking up people with junk to jettison with those who are tickled to get it for six years now, growing from a cottage industry in Tucson to 6.5 million members worldwide — despite the near certainty that your 1989 La-z-boy, your fake ficus and definitely your plaque with the fish singing the Macarena all have limited appeal (even with a price tag of zero).
