I have updated a trick I developed with the help and inspiration of Jim Sisti 7 years ago. In the original effect, I put recyclables into a trash can and transform them into ashes. This works well in CT where recyclables are burned along with trash if put into the trash can. Performing in Arkansas all next week, however, I needed a version that speaks to landfilling. With this version the recyclables come back out….along with a huge handfull of 50 dollar bills. This showcases that valuable resources don’t get transformed into new and useful items when trashed, and how we are wasting big money in managing them this way. Earlier this year Jeff McBride, offered the suggestion for the handful of 50 dollar bills for a routine on saving money through energy conservation….and it works well for recycling as well!
