Cora at the Lincoln County Health Offices, next door to the library, would love your help.
She collects specific recyclables for a group called TerraCycle Personal Care and Beauty Brigade for the benefit of Feed My Starving Children. Cora is also planning a Mobile Packing event for Ruidoso this Fall. A later blogpost will share the details for that event as they become available.
The idea is: collecting these items earns money. TerraCycle then contributes that money to Feed My Starving Children. FMSC meals cost less than a quarter (22 cents). Each item submitted from the list below earns two (2) pennies for FMSC.
This is a win-win situation. You can recycle your disposables while helping a charity. TerraCycle finds buyers to reuse the plastics in paving stones for your garden among other items.
Cora is collecting the following recyclables at the Lincoln County Health Center (105 Kansas City Rd, Ruidoso, NM 88345). If you have other ideas for displaying a collection container, please post a comment below.
eye shadow cases
shampoo bottles (including caps, triggers

shaving foam tubes (not cans)
face soap dispensers
face lotion jars
concealer tubes or sticks
hair gel tubes

NB: Hair spray cans, nail polish bottles, and nail polish remover bottles are not acceptable.
