Recently a dozen or so members of a College of Charleston went digging through dumpsters and their week-old trash in hopes of finding recyclables to save the earth -- and scrape together a few pennies.

The point was to show how perfectly useful and valuable things come to an untimely end.

The Post and Courier was there and has a nice write-up and photo gallery.

Oh, and the group in question? Alliance for Planet Earth.
