National Veterans Business Development Corporation

Saving the enviroment and putting Veterans to work.

I am not sure if there is a more appropriate catagory because this idea covers numerous catagories but here is my idea. Everyday I see hundreds of plastic bottles and empty I V solution bags being discarded in every area of the VAMC. My suggestion is to recycle these items and create other items which could be used either for the same original purpose or to create new products. In others words the plastic would be constantly being recycled. This would decrease the amount of products which are used daily to make more plastic and decrease the amount of plastic in the the nation's landfills. Veterans could be hired to fill positions in the venture and possibly the unemployment rate for the Veteran population would be decreased,especially the disabled Veterans.
