Eco-conscious residents in Bennington, Vermont make use of the landfillâ€™s recycling program to save money – and help protect their planet.
But our Canadian neighbors have gone Olymp-eco. A metals company in Vancouver is working with the Royal Canadian Mint to create the medals for the upcoming 2010 Olympics – out of trash metal.
The medals are made primarily from computer parts and are undulating instead of flat, and will include artistic representations of the orca whale and the raven.
While checking out real estate in Bennington, Vermont, take time to enjoy and shop at the Bennington Arts Guild on South Street, where many of our art athletes incorporate recycled objects into useable items.
