West Seattle holidays: Junction Neighborhood Organization debuts ‘Recycling Reindeer’ video

December 22, 2013 at 2:13 pm | In Environment, Holidays, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

Rudolf the Recycling Reindeer,” cousin to red-nosed Rudolph, has officially debuted on YouTube (watch above, or on YT here). The Junction Neighborhood Organization enlisted helpers to create the video on behalf of its holiday Recycle/Reuse/Reduce (Waste) campaign, and debuted it today at their West Seattle Farmers’ Market booth, where we found Michael and René from JuNO:

In keeping with the spirit of the campaign, the presents under the tree were wrapped in reused materials, and even the big handmade sign behind them is reused cardboard. Even beyond the holidays, JuNO will be evangelizing waste reduction as part of its participation in a regional challenge, and René tells WSB that the Junction area is in second place so far!

JuNO, by the way, just relaunched this past July, and has already been very busy, with activities like this as well as community cleanups and educational presentations regarding development (here’s our video-included coverage of the September 18th meeting explaining the alley/street vacation process involved in many major developments).

  2. What a great effort the kids made and kudos to everyone who was involved. It’s obvious this was a real community effort, really showing the WS community involvement and spirit. West Seattle should be proud of these kids, their parents for letting them participate, and their teacher/lyricist, Jeff Keller, for a frolicking remake of the Gene Autry classic.

  3. Thanks to Jeff Keller and his “choir” for a great song and video. And to alias for shooting and editing. Merry XMAs and the 3Rs…
