Global Recycling Day Showcases the Power of Recycling

By Robin Wiener, president of ISRI Recycling has become so second nature for most people it is easy to forget that every time you throw a soda can, newspaper, or water bottle into a blue bin, you are helping to preserve the environment and create jobs. People around the world are celebrating the second annual Global Recycling Day on March 18. It is reminder of the important role recycling plays in our lives, and that recyclables serve as a valuable resource, helping to preserve the planet for all of us, and for future generations to come. There are six major natural resources on Earth: water, air, coal, oil, natural gas, and minerals. Every year, several trillion tons of these resources are consumed. That is why it is imperative that we start considering recyclables to be the planet’s seventh and most important resource. Recyclables are a resource that can be used […]

TAKE A LITTLE PIZZA MY HEART

Supposedly a man named Gennaro Lombardi opened the first “said” pizzeria in New York City in 1905. An employee of his, Antonio Totonno Pero, began making pizza which sold for five cents. But since many people couldn’t afford the cost of a whole pie, they would say how much they could pay and were given a slice corresponding to the amount offered. Hence, a slice was born. And nowhere is pizza more part of the city than in Philadelphia, home to one of the largest concentrations of Italian-Americans in the nation. They revel in their celebs, like singers Frankie Avalon, Jim Croce, jazz impresario Buddy Greco, actors Bradley Cooper and Sylvester Stallone and baseball Hall of Famer, Roy Campanella, to name a few paisans. And the Italian lexicon can be heard all over South Philly. Figurati (fuhgedaboudit), Goomba (buddy), Chooch (someone who never amounted to much). The ambience of the […]
