A great project idea for Boy or Girl Scouts, Service Groups or High School Science Clubs...

I'm not the only one thinking about the Great Pacific Gyre "Trash Island."

I'm so thrilled to find The Tech Museum in San Jose, California sponsor a challenge to students and young innovators, grades 5 thru 12. The Tech Challenge is April 2011. Let us begin to solve problems. Won't you please help our world today? CLICK HERE to learn about the "Tech Challenge."

I've done a ton of research on simple ways any one of us can reduce contributing to the plastic garbage mess. Recycling is the most obvious and can easily be promoted by Boy or Girl Scouts, Service Groups such as Rotary, Kiwanis, Garden Clubs or any one of us interested in protecting our environment and natural resources.

QUESTION: How to recycle plastic caps and lids that curbside recycling may not accept?

ANSWER: Earth Day Every Day. Recycle Plastic Caps and Lids. FREE collection containers to those who ask.
