Meet: Curby Bucket (This is Not a Joke)

Big thanks to Nefertiti for the picture! - Nefertiti Jáquez https://twitter.com/nefertitijaquez/status/345917273288081408

The city of Philadelphia has a recycling mascot, and guess what his name is...

We all know recycling is goodgood for the environment, good for our checkbooks, good for... people who work in recycling? Dolphins? Sure. In the early 1990s, however, the perks of recycling weren't as well known as they are today. Recycling needed promotion to raise usage and awareness.

That's where Curby Bucket comes in.

The city of Philadelphia created a mascot in the early 1990s to raise awareness for recycling. They named him Curby Bucket. He still exists to this day.

This isn't a joke.

One of my many Phillies followers on Twitter (no, I don't know why) informed me of Curby Bucket's existence just recently. I think it is awesome that a city Kirby Puckett never even played professional baseball in has a mascot (sort ofok, pretty much) named after him.

Even if it is for a giant can of refuse...
