I've tried to do my part to recycle, but never have I had the need to be this creative.  I thought it was a cool story, at least from the clip.

It's a facebook video (I can't embed), but I could view it and I don't have a FB account, so I assume you can too:

The Landfill Harmonic, aka the "Recycled Orchestra"

"We shouldn't throw things away carelessly... we shouldn't throw people away...".

Sad... and inspiring at the same time!!

I was reading about Steve Jobs' yacht right before this.  Totally boggles the mind the extreme gap between the have's and the have not's within the one human species.

Beautiful and awesome.  Thanks for posting this.  It reminds me of the Kinshasa Orchestra.  CBS 60 Minutes did a story on them called Joy in the Congo.

Kinda embarassing to realize we worry about silnylon v cuben fiber, alcohol v canister stoves, single v double wall tents, etc.
