Good Morning, Good Morning! Many of you may, or may not, be aware that America Recycles Day is just around the corner. On November 15, organizations dedicated to keeping America beautiful will celebrate, promote and educate for recycling in the United States. Which is great! But many, perhaps most, recycling programs around the nation are run by a municipality and/or government funded. Here, on St. John, we have even more reason to celebrate recycling. First, because up until just three short years ago, we had almost no recycling program at all. And second, we are now able to say “cheers” to keeping aluminum cans and select plastics out of our landfills. And for that, we owe a huge thanks to the CHARITY who makes sure we have the ability to do just that: Island Green Living.
