Los Angeles, Calif., (November, 2008)– November 15 has been designated as National Recycling Day by the National Recycling Coalition ( In order to celebrate and participate in the environmentally-conscious cause, Red Lion Interactive, the leading distributor of video game accessories in the country, has implemented several crucial updates to its operation.

Red Lion:

• Recycles video game software and hardware through new buy-back program

• Uses only 100% recycled boxes for all its shipments

• Uses only shredded documents for box filler instead of environmentally hazardous popcorn foam or other similar materials

Tom LaVoie, Red Lion’s CEO, stated:“Making a positive contribution to the environment and the community can be achieved by implementing a few basic actions within our operation.
