The band Radiohead is getting into a new kind of recycling for PET water bottles. Plastics News staff reporter Rhoda Miel ran across some items this weekend about Radiohead's set at the Bonnaroo 2012 festival that mentioned that the band's on-stage lighting is LEDs within a wall of 14,400 used PET water bottles. There was a mention on Saturday in the ArtsBeat blog from The New York Times. Rolling Stone also mentioned it, and included some more detail, in a recent review of the band's Feb. 27 performance in Miami. Check out the videos from the concert for a better idea of what the lighting looks like. As Rhoda pointed out, considering that this is a band that has a song titled "Fake Plastic Trees," that use of recycled plastic is probably appropriate.
