Steve Trash Pitches Recycling in Show

 

Steve Trash

The Quad-City
Times reports
on an innovative magic show themed perfectly for the 35th
Anniversary of Earth Day. The magician’s name is Steve Trash.

Really.

Steve Trash’s legal name is, in fact, Steve Trash. What a perfect name for a
magician gaining so much attention for the cause of recycling. Mr. Trash
performed for more than 3,000 school children during two performances in the
beautiful Capitol Theatre in Davenport, IA.

Using the magic words, “Reduce, reuse, recycle,” the kids were able to help
Mr. Trash perform his miracles. The paper describes Mr. Trash as: “a fast talker
with a quick wit and dressed like a hobo.”

He is apparently not concerned by those who might be hobophobic.

Mr. Trash’s use of garbage not only demonstrates the amount of refuse created
by the typical American each day.

He pulled from the trash a container of glue wearing a Superman cape
(?Super Glue,? he called it), a rotten potato dressed like a Star Wars action
figure (?Darth Tater,? he joked) and other items which elicited laughs from the
children.

Mr. Trash worked for several years on the streets of New York, Los Angeles,
and Tokyo. ?There was so much trash and garbage everywhere I just naturally went
into it. I?m teaching kids about the value and importance of recycling through a
magic show. Scott County is a cool place because it has curbside recycling.?

This special Earth Day show got its message across. The paper noted,
“eight-year-old Bethany King said she enjoyed watching the flying tennis ball
but also heard Trash?s message loud and clear.’ We shouldn?t litter and things
should be reused so we don?t have to make more.'”
