Your Recycling Efforts Paid Off Big Time!

Thank you to everyone who helped recycle last weekend, your efforts really paid off.

We generated 1780 pounds of trash (still a high number, about a pound per person.)

But we kept 1800 pounds out of the trash-YES!

We recycled 1020 pounds and composted just over 800 pounds!

Well Done!!

A special THANK YOU to Sustainable Woodstock for helping us set up and sort our waste stream!

BONUS: The tech shirts we sell are from Atayne and are made from recycled plastic bottles!
