Returning again to the annual Keep America Beautiful (KAB) conference allowed us to renew good friendships and make many new ones. Matt Krug (hibu), Charlotte Shepherd (YP), Sarah R. Wilson (Dex Media) and myself spent three days in Charlotte, NC in conversation with hundreds of attendees from throughout the United States, many of them volunteer leaders in their communities dedicated to the environment and sustainability.
The highlight of the event was meeting eight-year-old Owen M. Stamm who, according to his local newspaper the Citizen Tribune, “… has been running a recycling mission for his neighborhood for years” and “helps collect garbage with the janitors” at his school. The Russellville, TN youngster is the owner and president of Project O.W.E.N. (Our World’s Environment in Need) and was at the KAB conference to accept a well-deserved award.
LSA is proud to showcase the good work of KAB, especially in advance of the annual America Recycles Day when we encourage local businesses and consumers to recycle their outdated print phone directories through curbside recycling and other local recycling initiatives in their communities. In turn, LSA is proud that KAB lends its logo to be featured on YellowPagesOptOut.com.
