Phone Books-The Beginning of the End

AT&T will no longer be automatically sending white pages to your home. See the Miami Herald story here. The yellow pages will still show up as before.

The real question is: what took so long? It costs money and uses precious resources to produce something that people don't want to be in or cluttering up there house. Also, there is no listing for cell phones and more people are moving away from the landline everyday.

So, the relevance is disappearing. ATT still makes money on the yellow pages thus it has some life but this is the beginning of the end of the "book".

MBB @ Bonnaroo

T2T President MaryBeth Burton is at Bonnaroo. She just can't stay away from recycling.

Pilon Project

T2T friend Leona McAndrews sent these pictures from a recent project. The pilons in the project are from T2T. They are large tubes from a vinyl graphic company. We have access to an unlimited amount at T2T.

T2T en las Noticias

Check out our Executive Director Casey Eckels on BBCMundo. It is great that Casey's knowledge is now recognized internationally.

The report is on how the economic times are affecting recycling processors. The value of the material has declined like most commodities.

Casey points out that recycling still makes economic sense when the cost of garbage disposal is figured in. Or so I am told. My Spanish needs work.

American Institute of Architecture Student Project

The Fort Lauderdale chapter of AIAS recently shared with us a project they did with the voluminous tubes we have at T2T. The project was part of their "Green Week"

Check out the photos here.

The students were able to access our materials thanks to the group membership paid by Florida Atlantic University's Broward Student Government.
