During the 2004 presidential election, members of the Environmental Victory Project distributed pamphlets, bumper stickers, and buttons with the slogan, “Some things were never meant to be recycled”. The activists, who were against president George Bush's reelection campaign, were made up of the League of Conservation Voters (a political advocacy group supporting the environment) and other enviro-groups who opposed Bush's environmental ideals. The anti-Bush campaign was by no means the only one, with similar campaigns aimed at John Kerry and political figures on both sides. Ultimately, the campaign against Bush failed when he won the 2004 election and won another four years in office.
