I had to express my horror at the non existing presence of recycling bins at the post Thanksgiving Darius Rucker Island Concert held on Kiawah Island. The mistake of leaving out recycling bins sent thousands of glass bottles, thousands of aluminium cans and thousands of plastic cups straight to dirty landfills. How can we feel pride in celebrating the special event in such a spectacular natural environment when we have a conscience of how toxic our celebratory actions needlessly are? 2015 is far beyond the time to be a careless consumer and waste maker, and I sincerely hope that at all future events recycling bins are provided as the bare minimum in environmental awareness.
