RecycleBank to Make Live 8 Environmentally Friendly

From the good friends of America's Hometown at RecycleBank:

June 30, 2005 – (Philadelphia) - RecycleBank announced today that it has been named the Official Recycling Provider for Philadelphia’s Live 8 Concert on July 2, 2005. RecycleBank will provide large, clearly marked recycling containers for an expected one million concertgoers, as well as arrange for collection and disposal of recyclable materials.

“We are thrilled to be a part of Live 8,” said RecycleBank co-founder and President Patrick FitzGerald. “It is an extraordinary global event, and as local company, RecycleBank is proud to help Philadelphia host guests from all over the world and demonstrate that Philadelphia can be a model environmental community.”

RecycleBank was founded in 2003 as a cost-effective and environmentally conscious solution to waste disposal. Through partnerships with more than 100 local and national vendors (including Starbucks, Whole Foods, Coca-Cola, ACME, Home Depot, and FedExKinko’s), RecycleBank financially rewards households that recycle. RecycleBank has tripled the recycling rates in the Philadelphia neighborhoods that are included in the program and will expand to the Philadelphia suburbs, Southeastern New Jersey, and Northern Delaware in September 2005.
