Now That’s Recycling!

Each day over at CoolPeopleCare, I share an idea to improve the world. Some of the ideas have to do with recycling or the environment, and all of the ideas can be done in 5 minutes or less.

So I like it when I come across a story that shows how similar ideas happen on a larger scale.

The Predators’ old Jumbotron just sold for $10,000 to a minor league hockey team in North Carolina. Had they not sold it, they would have disposed of it. So, many many pounds of metal and glass were kept out of a landfill or the bottom of the Cumberland, and a small-time hockey team got a sweet scoreboard.

This got me wondering: What else should Nashville try to auction to the highest bidder?

    Actually, that is re-use ;)

    Reduce, Re-use, Recycle

    Neat question though.

    How about auctioning off Steiner Liff (sp?) to the highest bidder?

    Of course, auctioning off our metal recycling plant may go against your intent. Still, that property will one day provide drastic changes to downtown’s expansion into east nashville.

    So … many … jokes..

    Can we auction off Phil Valentine? Or at least give him away?
