Coming Up: America Recycles Day

My friend, Diana Mendelsohn, is co-organizing an event for America Recycles Day, which is on Nov. 15. She's asked me to help spread the word about this event, so here's what's happening:

From 10am to 11am at the St. Joseph County Solid Waste District office, Diana will give a short talk entitled, “Want to save or make money? Tips on how to reuse, reduce, restore & recycle everyday & make it work for you!” Displays and information will be available, and there will be a showcase of items made from recycled materials (i.e., garden stepping stones, an "earth-wagon" made from reused plastic, recycled art). There will be light refreshments and door prizes, too.

And if you're interested in signing a pledge to recycle, click here. Based on these pledge entries, six winners will be randomly selected to receive a year's worth of free curbside recycling or a basket filled with recycled goods.
