One Of The Best Recycling Lists You'll Ever Get
(note: This Tip Sheet is a Keeper)
Last year, at a friend's holiday party, I spotted her tossing several empty soda cans into the trash. I said that I thought she was a recycler and she said, "Yes, I am committed to recycling, but I can't stand a heap of empty cans and bottles lining up on my counter. I need the space and it looks terrible. So I don't recycle when I entertain."
Several of us started to share holiday recycling tips. As a result, my friend took a large wastebasket from her office and tucked it under the kitchen table where nobody was sitting during the party. She alerted 3 environmentally conscious teens in the group and they kept emptying it into the large recycle bin outside. As a result, huge amounts of bottles & cans were recycled, & a kindness was done to Mother Earth.
Sometimes our hearts want to do the right thing, but we just do not know how to do it. Sometimes we need some Creative Problem Solving. Or sometimes we just need info as to WHERE to recycle it. Here are recycling tips I worked hard to round up for you.
Administrative Assistant Barbara Ziemba tells us the place to cancel
One unique thing that we do is every product shipped from our web site
www.RitaEmmett.com, includes a plastic
mailing envelope for: CELL PHONES FOR SOLDIERS. We were shocked to discover
that our military overseas pay a high price to call home. Back in 2004,
two teens, Brittany and Robbie Bergquist started this program with AT&T.
Proceeds from donated cell phones & chargers are used to purchase prepaid
calling cards for American troops. These teens have raised millions of dollars
to help our troops call home.
Would you believe we found a place where you can get rid of your old or USED UP:
It is EcoTools' "Look Gorgeous, Love Green" campaign. They'll send everything to RecycleBank --- an organization that recycles a wide range of materials through its recycling center --- and reward you with a coupon good for one of EcoTools beauty products (with a maximum value of $8). It's a pretty gorgeous way to go green. Go to http://www.lookgorgeouslovegreen.com/swapyoursupplies.html
