Do Just One Thing for May 22, 2017

An association of athletes called Sports Medal Recycling does just that: They take your old medals gathering dust from road races, endurance events and track and field competitions and recycle them. The organization separates all the recyclable materials -- the metals used to make the medallions, the ribbons that hold them and even the cardboard and plastic packaging -- and keeps it all out of landfills. The proceeds are used to support nonprofit and charity runs to cover the cost of participation (with all of the money going to charitable organizations). To learn more and get the ship-to address, visit sportsmedalrecycling.com.
