For Earth Day this year, students at State College of Florida set out to break the Guinness World Record for most plastic bottles collected in an 8 hour period. Organized by sophomore Shane Henry, the event not only won the title, but also brought a community together and helped raise environmental awareness. This was the second year that Shane put on the EarthFest celebration. In addition to the Guinness World Record challenge, it also featured booths to teach about recycling, demonstrations of hybrid and hydrogen cars, and presentations about easy and affordable ways to go green. The total tally of 46,357 recycled bottles came to 4,980 pounds! Our good friend Rick Hughes of Anything Arts was there to capture the event on video.
