Mel Gibson Settles Tire Lawsuit With Former Investor

mel-gibson-settles-tire-lawsuit-web.jpg

This was definitely NOT eco-friendly!

Nader Sherif claims Mel Gibson told him to invest his life savings into an green company, Green Rubber.

Green Rubber recycles tires so it seems like a good idea, right?

He was promised his money would be returned at anytime and that Mel himself would write the check if the company didn't return his loot.

You know where this is going…

Sherif sued and Melly-Mel has relented and settled with the investor.

How much Mel paid Sherif is unknown but we hope it's a lot of green!

David Guetta Recycles His Own Song For RiRi!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooRihannaMusic Minute

Hmmm - sound familiar?

That's because the song (above) was basically recycled by David Guetta and presented to Rihanna for her song/endorsement deal with Doritos, now known as Who's That Chick!

So much for being so excited to work with her!

Ha!

New York City To Recycle Clothes

Filed under: Fashion Smashion

ap100701031823_e.jpg

Now here's a good idea.

Come this September, New York City residents will be able to dump off old clothes that will be recycled.

The new recycling program includes placing 50 clothing bins in high traffic areas in hopes to eliminate the 190,000+ tons of textiles that ends up in New York landfills each year.

And if all goes well in the Big Apple, the program could go nationwide.

Not a bad idea. We just hope people won't get lazy and end up tossing it like they usually do.

Thoughts???

Yet Another Reason We're Glad We Live In Los Angeles!

Filed under: Etc.

Innovative!

Los Angeles is going to start a new pilot program with RecycleBank that will compensate households for recycling! The hope is that the city's recycling rate will go up from 65% to over 70%.

15,000 homes will be eligible for the program and the contents of their tagged bins will be weighed and recorded each week. Depending on the weight, residents earn points that they can redeem at businesses like CVS, Bed Bath & Beyond, and El Pollo Loco!

The total tally can reach the equivalent of $400 a year per household!

That's a lot of free chicken!
