The Value of Facebook…

There can be no denying that Facebook, like so many of the other New/Social Media tools available, is a force to be bargained with.

Would you like paper, or plastic?

House Democrats recently re-introduced a bill that would impose a $0.05 fee on all single-use plasic bags. The fee would take effect January 1st, 2010 and actually be increased to $0.25 in 2015.

This would really make reusable grocery bags an absolute no-brainer for everyone. You can pick them up at your local grocery store, or Wal-Mart, for about a buck, or even summon the Martha Stewart in you (pre chain gang) and make your own!

However, if you do end up using a plastic bag, please remember to drop them off at your local grocery. Almost all provide a recycling solution.

EPC to Provide Electronics Recycling Education at St. Louis Earth Day

Earth Day 2009

One of the oldest Earth Day celebrations in the Midwest, the 2009 St. Louis Earth Day Festival, is being held in Forest Park on 4/26 from 11am-6pm.  As the area’s leading recycler of electronics, EPC has been asked to educate the more than 25,000 festival participants about electronics recycling. Stop by  our educational booth at this year’s festival and learn why and how we recycle electronics.  Our environmental efforts have earned EPC the St. Louis Business Journal’s 2008 Heroes of the Planet Award. If you can’t make it to the festival, you can check out our website for more information on how you can help EPC in our efforts to prevent electronics and their hazardous parts from ending up in landfills.

Earth Hour ’09 – Turn out. Take action.

With only a few days left, this year’s “Earth Hour” is gaining momentum and is well on its way to being the largest climate event in history.

At 8:30 pm, on Saturday, March 28, the twinkling lights of Broadway will shut down… the Acropolis, in Athens, will go dim… and Seattle’s Space Needle will fade into the darkness. All done to voice concern about climate change and to promote the need to find solutions to our environmental problems.

Visit Earth Hour’s website, spread the word, and let us know if you plan to be a part of this historic event!
