Vancouver comes up with recycled medals for 2010 Olympic Games
With changing times every individual is now being more careful about the environmental issues today. Olympics is the new target of the environmentalists this time. The Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic Games has come up with designs for the gold, silver, and bronze Olympic Medals which are made out of recycled materials. These medals are designed by Canadian artists and are made up of used electronics. 6.8 metric tons of circuit board diverted from landfills has gone into the making of these medals. The design of these medals is curved and is laser etched, making every medal unique.
