"peach state." I've always loved this poster, hanging in my home office. I worked as a volunteer on the floor of the Democratic Convention, when it was held in Atlanta in 1988. When I was leaving on the final night, someone handed me a rolled up poster at the exit, which I didn't look at until I got home. Here's what the text on the lower left says,
"Your participation in the 1988 Democratic National Convention Recycling Project made possible this commemorative poster.
The poster is printed on recycled paper produced from waste paper collected during convention week in Atlanta July 18-21. Several tons of waste paper were collected each day of the convention and recycled to illustrate the valuable role recycling plays in transforming waste materials into usable products.
This recycling project was sponsored by Recycle America, a Waste Management, Inc., Company, in conjunction with Georgia Clean and Beautiful, the Georgia Conservancy, and the Georgia Chapter of the Sierra Club."
I did remember all of the big recycling bins around. I was delighted with this poster and had it framed. As someone who now works for a commercial printer, I can't imagine how they pulled this off in time to hand them out at the close of the convention, but anything's possible, I guess. They must have pulled an all-nighter!
Have a lovely weekend, friends!
