Solution: Residential Recycling.
A layer of cell phones, soda cans, and plastic bottles encrust the outer layer of this Cool Globe sponsored by U.S. Cellular. Artist Majeed worked with the Gary Comer Youth Center in Chicago, educating them about respecting the environment though reusing materials and recycling, bringing it down to one glass jar, which can save enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours. What else can you do with all too disposable cell phones?
