This past Saturday was the closing day for Big B’s Little League. We don’t usually spend much time at the park and rarely visit the concession stand but this weekend was different. Halfway through the game Big B looked at the dugout coach and said “Look at all these bottles in the trash, why aren’t they being recycled?” Gotta love a 6 yr old who is more interested in recycling than the game.
Spending a whole day at the ball park I was in shock with the over flowing garbage cans of plastic bottles! By noon all the trash cans were full and most of the content was bottles. They obviously don’t have a recycling program in place. We’re lucky though, this year we at least have trash cans in the dugouts.
Well since Little League is a volunteer organization I guess I’ve volunteered myself to a new pet project…setting up a recycling program for the league. I can see so much potential. I may even link the recycling program with a fundraiser. Many teams bring drinks for the kids following the game and Capri Sun is a common choice. Wouldn’t it be neat to take those juice packs and join a TerraCyclebrigade to earn money for the park? Hmmmm…the juice is flowing!
Stay tuned as I try to green out little league before next springs season begins. Anyone have any tips?
