Thanks J.L. for the link. What a great concept! I can see where the "fun theory" could play a big role in recycling. Viewed and noted.

Good idea. It would certainly encourage children to recycle and if they get into the habit when they are young, hopefully they will continue into adulthood.

Brilliant idea- appeal to people's basic instinct (the need to be amused), and you will get results. What a difference in mentality, when 5 years ago, all you had to do was give your glass Coke bottle to the local store for 5 cents.
