Help us hit 1M lbs
2012 is the year that ZeroLandfill will hit 1 Million pounds. That is 1 Million pounds of expired specification samples, 2 oz to 5 lb items previously destined for the landfill. That is 1 Million pounds that will weighed, sorted and moved by countless volunteers. AND that is 1 Million pounds of creative materials that will have found their way into the hands of educators, artists and crafters.
February kicked off the year with ZeroLandfill East Tennessee and ZeroLandfill Akron. They added 25,000 pounds to get us to 673,820. And it is from here that we kick off April.
Some think of Earth Day in April, I hereby declare it ZeroLandfill month. We have seven markets that will be hosting ZeroLandfill projects in their community. Four of these are brand new project sites. If you are new to ZeroLandfill world, this is a great time of year to jump in and get your feet wet.
