@scholastic: yes, actual popped corn. It is still one of the better solutions I've seen in awhile. Howeevr, now that corn prices are going up becuase of drought/flooding, it may not be cost-effective anymore.

That would mean even more impressive numbers.  By popcorn, do you literally mean popped corn??  I'm thinking maybe an answer to our feedlot problems in the Midwest!

One of the things Ray didn't mention was how much cardboard, plastic and packaging materials flow through a distribution warehouse. It is mind-boggling and a great opportunity for recycling and savings. I also think it was one of Avnet's operations managers that first proposed popcorn be used instead of packing peanuts. That was even before green became trendy.

You're doing great work! Where I live, people are still surprised if you bring in your own bags to the stores. Recycling is just not stressed all that much here, and even the official recycling we have for refuse is not enforced with much that could be recycled just thrown in with the trash.
