Re: [greenyes] Penn and Teller take on recycling

I'd say that one thing you could "do" to counteract such propaganda is to send
out a letter to the editor in your local newspaper, or a guest opinion in your
local newspaper, or a press realease from your organization on the day of the
airing and clarify what "trash" their propaganda is and provide your expertise
and experience as proof. People are sure to believe you input being a real
person in the community over some TV show hillaria
