Since their feature in the August 12th Florida Today Life section, the band has received over 450lbs 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 Star (née 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 band will be hosting a meet and greet at the venue starting at 7:30PM. The concert event begins at 10PM and admission is free to donors.

Simone was best known in 2007 for her work with Yellow Umbrella and The Haven, both are organizations dedicated to the prevention of child abuse.
