Recology

Three ideas for giving to kids this holiday season

It’s the holiday season. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone. And if you have children you are thinking of during this season, here are a few thoughts from Recology.

Do you know the company Green Toys?  They make toys out of recycled milk bottles.  There’s just one example of the innovative work being done by vendors to use recovered materials in their products.

Kaboose.com has a list of craft ideas to make from recycled and reusable material. There’s nothing like making things with kids to enrich their early life experiences.

In San Mateo County, you can also participate in the annual Coats for Kids collection drive. Recology San Mateo County will start collecting coats as part of the residential recycling service and will also picking up coats at special drop-off locations.

Recology Vallejo has collected children’s coats each year for the past eight years. The donated coats may be of any size but should be in good enough shape that a child can play, sit and go to school with a sense of pride.

All coats will be cleaned and then given to local children who are in need.

We look forward to your participation during the holiday season.

    Donating coats is really important, especially for those of us in Canada (snow is falling!) I have also heard of some schools or neighbourhoods doing coats exchanges — another great way to reuse!

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
