Seven hundred and fifty-seven vehicles took advantage of this year's Earth Day Recycling Extravaganza!!! That's over twice as many vehicles than 2011!

Many thanks to the participating businesses and organizations that collected hard-to-recycle items. A special thanks to our host - St. Louis Community College, Forest Park Campus, and to Lambert International Airport for providing a free shuttle service from STLCC to the Festival with compressed natural gas and biodiesel buses.

Participants in the Green Strum Band Scramble make instruments out of re-purposed materials over the course of a couple hours at the Festival, and then must write and perform a song with other musicians they may have never met before!

Congratulations to this year's champions (& winners of some sweet tickets to LouFest!): "The Trash Tones", made up of Michael Morgan, Hannah Arnson and Doug Foehner.

Watch a video of their performance here, AND learn the cords/lyrics.
