With the involvement and enthusiasm of people like you, recycling is back! And so are thousands upon thousands of recycled products made from materials that would otherwise be piling up in our nation's landfills. It doesn't just make sense. It makes a huge difference to our environment, our quality of life and our country's future. Why Recycling Is Important. As stewards of the environment, we are responsible for preserving and protecting our resources for ourselves and for future generations.  Getting Back to Basics - Recycling is really just common sense, and until the “modern era,” it was a common household activity. Before the 1920s, 70% of U.S. cities ran programs to recycle certain materials. During World War II, industry recycled and reused about 25% of the waste stream. Because of concern for the environment, recycling is again on the upswing. The nation's composting and recycling rate rose from 7.7% of the waste stream in 1960 to 17% in 1990. It's currently up to around 33%. Learn more HERE

On a Sad Note


VCO columnist and Founder of the Entertainment Network passed away last night. We received this from her daughter Sherrie today:


I am so sorry to tell you...I don't even have the mother passed away last night.  She would have wanted me to tell you because she loved you all so much.  She would have wanted everyone to come together...everyone to celebrate her life.  She has done so much for this much for my whole family...I don't know how to start a day without her.  I hope you will all understand if there is a time where the Network is down for a while...I don't know the time or the date of the funeral...when I do I'll let everyone know.  I know you love her very we nothing more now.  God bless you all at these times.  Keep close to your loved never know when the last time will come and you say I love you for the last time..... Remember to be kind.  If you need me...I'm there.     Love, Sherie


We at VCO send our heartfelt condolences to Bea's family
