Gulf Coast Oil Spill

I have been working from New Orleans for the past month and one of the things I have been very interested in was, "how do the locals feel about the effects of the gulf coast oil spill".

How do you like your Indiana skies today.... natural or man-made?

Keep it going

All sewn up

Hi Renee,

Recycle this!

Dear Renee - 

What is the best way to get involved and have an impact on what the city of Indianapolis decides regarding recycling?

I find it ironic to see all of the new billboards around town noting the problem when the solutions haven’t seemed to follow.

Have a seat

I have several expired car seats that can no longer be used. These things are huge and I feel bad dumping them in the garbage, but I can’t find any information about recycling them. Any ideas? Thanks!
