One of the biggest ways you can impact the world is with your wallet. Buying sustainably sourced and packaged products made from highly recyclable materials like Steel, Copper, Aluminum helps by preventing waste before recycling needs to occur. Plastic is not an easily recyclable material, each time it is refined it's strength degrades. It is estimated that only 5% - 10% of plastic is able to be recycled, purchasing less plastic packaging and less single use plastic is the solution to reducing plastic waste. Americans throw away billions of pounds of clothing each year, shopping at thrift stores and in clearance sections is fun, affordable, and helps reduce clothing waste.
The Stop Throwing Out Pollutants (S.T.O.P.) Program is designed to provide area residents with a safe, environmentally sound method of disposal of the many hazardous materials found in the average home. By bringing such toxins as batteries, antifreeze, drain cleaners, and pesticides on any of the scheduled S.T.O.P. collection days, you and your family can make a significant contribution to the protection of our precious groundwater supply and the preservation of our bays and estuaries.
