Reuse Your Television competition: ReNew Magazine

Posted in Seeking by sashashtargot on March 28th, 2011

Send your ideas on how to reuse TVs to ReNew magazine.

As the humble old idiot box is replaced by the flatscreen and Australia prepares to switch to digital, televisions are popping up on nature strips across the country, ready for someone to take them away. Sadly, a lot of these boxes end up in landfill, leaching polluting metals and toxins.  Send ReNew magazine your ideas, realistic or completely mad, for reusing old television sets.

Describe in 100 words or less what an old TV can be recycled into for the good of the planet: the main aims are to keep it out of landfill and to be something fun, useful or completely ridiculous. Ideas for what to do with particular parts are welcome too.
