Well, if you're any good at modeling, what about a tree and a little girl hugging it as a topper? You can make the cake itself the ground, and even put a recycle symbol on the side. Or if you don't do models, you could cut them out of flat fondant and put them on top of the cake in a more 2D approach. OR... depending on how much cake you need, you could do a ball cake and make it look like the earth with a big recycle symbol on the side.

Hee hee! I loved the title of this, I call my husband that all the time as he digs our recycling out of the garbage.

I like Melvera's idea. A globe would be cool too, done in a ball pan?

You could also combine the two ideas and have the girl and her tree on top of the globe! thumbs_up.gif

I'm supposed to be doing one for a friend who is deep into environmental issues here. What I was going to do is a base cake (decorated how I don't know yet...lol) But for a topper of some type, I was going to model the tree with a child hugging it, with an inscription reading....."Don't just hug a tree, plant one."

Luckily this isn't due for a while...the only thing I've gotten down is the topper and the inscription, but it might add to your ideas.

You can put the recycle symbol on the back of the girl's tshirt...if she's going to be hugging the tree. I found this t-shirt that you could mimic w/this symbol on it. Egreent dot com and then go to tshirts for women
