PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE VOLUNTEERS
As a team we are creative, talented and innovative designers, trying to make a difference in our society.
As a group, we are passionate about our profession and our ability to support the local community and the environment.
As part of the Chicago Conservation Corp, Chicago (C3) and the Department of Environment, our team of volunteers help spread awareness about placing plastic bottles and other recyclables from beaches, parks and other public areas, in the proper recycling bags, so they may be recycled by the City of Chicago. By doing so, we are eliminating trash, which has a negative effect on the environment and on our quality of life.
A fundamental part of our commitment to the environment includes participation in U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) innovative WasteWise program, the country's first national voluntary solid waste reduction program. WasteWise encourages organizations to reduce municipal solid waste through waste prevention, recycling, and buying or manufacturing recycled products.
We are happy to announce that we are a part of “Change Our Environment for the Better” for we are Energy Star Partner’s and members of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) WasteWise, and also members of The United States Green Building Council (USGBC). The USGBC is a non-profit community of leaders working to make green buildings available to everyone within a generation.
