Book FreeCycle and a Shoe Recycle

News May 1, 2013 0 Comments

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

• Keeping them out of the landfills, creating a cleaner, greener planet

Books and shoes can be dropped off at the W. Highland Avenue branch of Valley Green Bank on May 1- 3, from 8 a.m.-6 p.m., and on May 4, from 9 a.m.- 1 p.m.

Then stop by Eco Alley, the Green Branch of the Garden Fest on W. Highland Avenue, this Sunday May 5 to help yourself to interesting books for free.
