A large part of our mission, at Trash Backwards, is to get out into the community and spread the word about reducing, reusing, and rethinking our collective “stuff.”
Yesterday our target was the local public library, where we set up a display alongside Sustainable Bainbridge’s Zero Waste Initiative. Together, we’re spreading the word about the 3 R’s.
I watched, as 2 women walked up and discussed how pleased they were to learn which plastic bags are recyclable.
Do you read displays like this or do you find them annoying?
Our aim is to inspire, with good humor and without bugging anyone or making people feel judged.
If you’re interested in helping us spread the word about reducing single-use plastics and finding great reuse ideas for all your other stuff, you could always download our 8 X 10 poster to pin up at your nearest favorite cafe or in a spot filled with people who would be interested in our mission:
Do you have any further advice on how to get the word out about Trash Backwards and our goal of helping people find joy in reducing their impact? We’re open to your good ideas!
