Remaining Latex Paint Has Been Recycled!

The remaining latex paint from the Household Hazardous Waste event has been recycled.  The County hired GreenSheen paint, which recycles 99% of the paint it accepts and re-sells it to Habitat for Humanity.  This means all 50,000 pounds of toxic substances disposed of by Lake County residents has been taken care of, wahoo!

Thank You Leadville for a Great Wild and Scenic Film Festival!

Sixty people attended.  We watched 9 films, ate a lot of crepes and drank Sierra Nevada (one of our National Sponsors).

Crowd favorites were: SLOMO (the story of the man that escaped the system and is not happy all day long!), and the Scared is Scared (Asa Mouse and Toby Bear go on some adventures).

Thank you to our 40 new members who will be taking part in all sort of environmental service: fixing things they would other wise throw away, picking up trash along the trail, Waste Warrior Watch, Zero Waste Events, start a recycle system at work, compost, do energy efficiency work at home and lots more.
