Hold The Plastic - National Recycling Company Sides With Local Rockers

Orlando, Florida, USA September 4th 2009 , New Hampshire-based industry giant, CD Recycling Center Of America has teamed up with Melbourne Florida rock band 'Simone' to assist with actively reducing recording industry waste.

PRLog - Aug. 24, 2009 - Appearing at the Orlando nightclub, AKA Lounge, Friday September 4th, the local rockers are asking concert-goers to bring at least one compact disc to be recycled. The touring groups' mission is to recycle two-thousand pounds of unused compact disc materials throughout the remainder of the year. "Every $100,000 spent on commercial software reproduction creates the global warming potential of approximately 29 metric tons of carbon dioxide," according to a recent study from researchers at Carnegie-Mellon university. "as well as 38 kilograms of toxic waste."

Since their feature in the August 12th Florida Today Life section, the band has received over 250lbs of unused compact discs to be recycled. "We did some research on (compact discs in landfills) and found out that it is estimated to take over one million years for a CD to decompose," said Simone Taylor, lead singer of the band who recently started the recycling campaign. Since June, the band has placed a green recycling bin on stage at concerts and asks fans to fill it with old CDs, CD-ROMS,DVDs and video games they do not use anymore.

The concert event begins at 9PM and tickets are $7.00. More information may be found on the bands’ MySpace page http://myspace.com/simonesongs. Discounted tickets may be purchased in advance from the band by calling 321-698-9671.  The AKA Lounge is located on 68 E Pine Street, Orlando, FL 32801 and they may be reached by phone at 407-839-3707.
