Book FreeCycle and Shoe Recycle this Sunday

Book FreeCycle and a Shoe Recycle
GReen IN Chestnut Hill (aka GRinCH) is adding a Book FreeCycle and a Shoe Recycle to this year's Eco Alley at the Garden Fest! Back by popular demand, the Book FreeCycle was a tremendous success last year. About 1,500 books were donated by residents and then taken for free on Eco Alley by anyone interested. And throngs of people were interested! 
This year we are adding a Shoe Box Recycle fundraiser. ShoeBox Recycling collects gently used shoes for reuse. These shoes are ‘worn, but definitely not worn out.’ The company works hard to give your shoes a new life by:
* Providing affordable shoes to those in need
* Creating micro-enterprises for individuals throughout the world, thus fueling local economies here and abroad
* Keeps them out of the landfills, creating a cleaner, greener planet
Books and Shoes can be dropped off at the W. Highland Ave branch of Valley Green Bank beginning May 1st; this Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 8am-6pm and Saturday 9am-1pm. 
Then stop by Eco Alley, the Green Branch of the Garden Fest on W. Highland Ave, this Sunday May 5th to help yourself to interesting books for FREE!

Thanks to all of the residents and business people who brought their Weird EWaste last Saturday! We collected over 14,000 pounds of toxic electronics for responsible recycling while raising funds to support our Green Warrior Student grant program!
