Earth Day 2015: Join Us for 2 Billion Acts of Green!

Posted at April 17, 2015 | By : | Categories : Our Events | 0 Comment

Happy Earth Month, readers! This month ATRS stands with other green-minded companies and organizations in the pledge to reach 2 billion acts of green for Earth Day. You’ll find us at 18 action-packed events across the country, providing free onsite recycling for unwanted clothing, shoes & accessories.

Our community recycling advocates, drivers and managers each select the event in their community they want to support. Together they volunteer by handing out free goodies, playing family-friendly games and sharing the importance of textile recycling with their neighbors. Here’s what you can expect to find at an Earth Day celebration near you:

Kicking off Earth Day Houston with earth-friendly treats for all!

1. Wildflower Bracelets

That’s right: Wildflower Bracelets are back by popular demand! This ultra-fashionable wrist wear is being handed out in 11 cities this month to eco-advocates of all ages. Printed on seed paper, these bracelets can be worn for the day then planted under a thin layer of soil. Once the wildflower seeds inside of the bracelets bloom, you’ll have a daily reminder of how easy it is to create a greener tomorrow simply by recycling.

2. Recycler Toss Game

This year we debut a new activity that’s fun for the entire family: the Recycler Toss Game! Based on the popular cornhole game, this simplified game helps everyone learn why and how to recycle textiles. The rules are simple:

1. Grab your bean bags and stand 5 paces away from the board.

2. Ready, aim, fire! Each participant gets 3 tosses to land the bean bags on the board or into the hole.

3. Win, lose or draw: Everyone gets a sticker for participating!
