Not long ago, an eighth grader in London, Ontario Canada lost her homework.
While this isn't uncommon per se, the project itself was unique, so much so that after her USB stick was discovered, something simply amazing took shape in a professional audio recording studio.

Eighth grader Kylie John's homework assignment was no ordinary effort. Kylie had recorded a jingle for an environmental PSA, saved it to a flash drive and...lost it! I first heard about this in an article featured in the London Community News which has since amassed international coverage having received attention from the CBC and beyond.
Here's a video that tells the story of how Kylie's original assignment when from a single track featuring her vocals to a full-out multi-track production courtesy of recording engineer Darryl Lahteenmaa at Brick House Productions and his friends Steve and Sarah Giardino. Lahteenmaa also teaches audio post-production at Fanshawe College.
In the spirit of Kylie's PSA, Lahteenmaa and his friends recycled the audio to create something new while preserving the original vocals and artistic intent before returning the newly mixed and mastered recording to the John family.
Given the topic of Kylie's public service announcement, I thought I'd ask you how you help contribute to the well being of our planet.
What do you do to help the environment?
