Are You Recycling Tonight?


Green-E, the “Environmental Elvis,” wants to know. The eco-conscious impersonator took the stage with curled lip this morning, crooning classic Elvis tunes revamped with an environmental message. His bedazzling second-hand costume was accessorized with rings and globe pendants he found at flea markets, and draped around his shoulders was a green cape with Earth embroidered across the back.


Urging sustainability, Green-E had BioBlitzers all, ahem, shook up, and promised “You can love me tender, but only if you recycle.”
