What's Happening, South Carolina?

recycling_mascot02.jpgPlease welcome to the pantheon of costumed recycling advocates Rerun, the official recycling mascot for Beaufort County, South Carolina. According to Greenopolis, Rerun is the third in a family of recycling mascots under the Department of Health and Environmental Control, the other two being Bottle Guy and Can Guy (I assume the staffer in charge of mascot names was off that day).

The costume was made possible through an educational grant from Waste Management and was designed by Facemakers, Inc., which seems to have quite a bit of experience producing recycling-themed mascot costumes. So there you go: a whole industry you never knew existed.
