Opinion Letters Macon Pride on a mission to promote recycling

Macon Pride is the volunteer group working with Joel Ostroff, Macon County Recycling Coordinator to promote the reuse and recycling of products we use every day. Amazingly, 98 percent of what we consider “throwaway packaging” can be reused in some way – goods made into other useful items plus saving money for the taxpayers and make our community more attractive and sustainable. A recent display at the Macon Library showed many of those areas.

Macon Pride recognizes businesses/organizations/churches that are doing the right thing to recycle, giving each a “Proud to Recycle Here” sticker to be displayed in their front window or door. As you shop or attend functions, see if you spot one of those stickers and tell them you are proud of them for recycling. Everyone needs a pat on the back for a job well done.

The following names are just the beginning of what Macon Pride hopes to become a long list of Franklin’s local businesses, organizations and churches that are part of this recycling awareness effort – watch for more photos and acknowledgements to see who else is on this “bandwagon of doing good” — Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Room Full of Nuts, Edward Jones, Great Smokey Mountain Fish Camp, Rosebud Cottage, Life’s Bounty, H & R Block, Mountain Valley Health Food Store, Books Unlimited, Caterpillar, Goshen Timber Frames, Collectiques, Tony Angel Media, Gooder Graphics, Kitchen Gourmet and the Macon County Library.
