The campaign to get Congress to Recycle is alive
and moving! Stay tuned for an update. In the
meantime, here is a transcript from the radio spot,
GreenScene, from their website:

Show #50: Challenging Congress to Recycle

This is Laurie Howell with The GreenScene. "The
Grassroots Recycling Network" has had it with
Congress not recycling. The group is a national non-
profit coalition of hundreds of local groups nationwide
that are sick of our federal lawmakers not practicing
what they preach.

So the group is challenging Congress and its employees
to start recycling office paper and whatever other
recyclable materials they buy with taxpayers money.

The Grassroots Recycling Network likens Congress to a
small city. It has 20,000 employees and a recycling
campaign could generate some bucks.

Under one plan, money raised from marketing recycled
paper, bottles and cans could pay for day care in

If you'd like to put your two cents in to encourage
Congress to recycle, contact the Grassroots Recycling
