"I will break everything," Tarek Makdessi said as he grabbed a sledgehammer and went berserk, smashing glass bottles while people partied on the floor above.Instead of being thrown out by security, Makdessi was applauded for his contribution to the inaugural "Stress and Waste Management" party held Sunday by a new initiative called Kasser.Near a booth stocked with hammers and baseball bats at KED in Karantina, others waited their turn to have a go at the porcelain toilets, glass bottles and electronic waste lined up to be annihilated at the event billed as a way to engage people in an environmental cause in a "fun way".In addition to recycling the smashed waste, Arc on Ciel, Recycle Beirut and Recycle Lebanon worked on the ground to spread awareness about recycling in Lebanon.The event also provided an opportunity for the NGOs to engage with people otherwise not actively involved in environmental causes.
