Waste Diversion: Sponsored + Volunteer Programs
We have several different items that we collect in the shop to help our customers and community divert their waste from landfill.
Here's a break down!
Earthub is a local initiative that we are so happy to take part in on a voluntary basis. All of the items listed below can be brought into our shop - they do not need to be sorted, but they must be clean and in useable condition.
We collect for the following list of Terracyle boxes that our shop has purchased and sponsored. Please make sure these items are both clean and sorted as you will need to put them in specific bins in store. Please remember that if you put items in the bin that do not belong, that may mean that the whole bin becomes garbage as the finished product will be contaminated.
