Missing today’s Houston Social Media Week #Instacrawl. Instead, I’m hanging out with great City of Houston staff and talented Houston-area students who are interested in learning more about recycling. We’re judging students’ work in using salvaged materials to decorate recycling carts. Love this one covered in plastic bottles and cardboard. Not a typical Saturday, but a good one!

A Major League Baseball team’s offer of free Saturday-night game tickets in exchange for unwanted electronics is a big deal, both in terms of generating greater awareness about the need to dispose thoughtfully of computers, cell phones, and other equipment and strengthening the team’s ‘good community player’ image. 
I applaud the Houston Astros (my hometown team) for doing such a thing — holding its first “e-cycling event” — this Saturday at Houston’s Minute Maid Park (formerly Enron Field, but I digress). Let’s hope that professional sports teams in other markets follow suit and hold similar large-scale awareness-raising events.
