Does anyone know of any recycling trivia?
Some specifics I am looking for are:
* How many plastic bottles in a pound in 1989? How many in a pound today?
Also for glass?
* When did cans replace the 8-pack returnable pop bottles?
* When was the toxicity reduced in household alkaline batteries?
* When did the tennis shoes with light-up components come and go?

And when in the heck did Beanie Babies start?
I am doing a display to celebrate 10 years of recycling in our county. Does
anyone have any creative ways to celebrate the message!?! Thanks for your
thoughts. Kari
