Recycling sign for badge holdersFor her informal end-of-the-year events, Joy Hall Bryant, a program manager for the Texas Department of Information Resources, raids her storage closet for leftover badge holders, lanyards, note pads, miscellaneous pens, bags and trinkets from events held earlier in the year. "Nothing matches, but we put up signs explaining what we are doing, and everyone really gets into it," says Bryant. "People appreciate the need to keep costs down and not waste supplies."
