Day 87: Used Paper From Kiss Concert to Line Gift Box

Day 87: Used Paper From Kiss Concert to Line Gift Box

I can thank Kiss for helping me to line the gift box that I made from a greeting card.

I went to the Kiss concert last night at the Staples Center. As always, for the past 500 years, when they played “Rock N Roll All Night and Party Everyday” there were huge blasts of confetti.

Instead of letting the paper go to the landfill, I took some home to line the gift box.

Shame on Kiss for many reasons. First off for playing two songs from their new album because let’s be honest, nobody wants to hear stuff of their new album. Secondly for generating all that waste each night. The last reason is for dressing up Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer up as Ace Frehley and Peter Criss respectively. It’s just weird.

So the next time you are at a Kiss (or any other concert) be sure to grab some of that confetti. When the Yankees win the World Series next year again, you could also get some at the parade as well. Unfortunately if you are a Met or Knick fan, you won’t be able to attend parades anytime soon.

The EPA says that each year the US uses about 85 million tons of paper and paperboard.

What was your simple green act for the day?
