Recently, a good friend of mine changed jobs and moved from Washington state to the deep South. He had lived in his Washington home since 1993. During that time, he noticed his computer evolving, from those famous “floppy disks” to CDs that you would “burn” everything onto, family photos, work files, almost everything on his computer. His home television then changed. A little more than a decade ago the big switch occurred, when all the movies he rented from the local video store were unavailable on video and were only available on DVD.
It was when he traded in his old video recorder that the CD/DVD revolution was complete for him. Everything he did seemed to revolve around those little shiny discs.
As in every big move, especially one across the country, he needed to downsize, and clean out the home he has lived in for two decades. As a conscientious environmentalist, he is recycling/reusing everything, the old couch is going to the local church, and a good amount of his clothes are going to the Salvation Army.
But what about the hundreds of CDs and DVDs that he needs to dispose?
After searching high and low on the internet, he finally found two useful websites that can assist people who need to get rid of their CD/DVDs. For today’s Green Minute – take a minute to learn about CD/DVD recycling and the environmental difference you can make at home and the office.
Below is a useful video about their program.
