Trailside Nature and Science Center starts “Earth Day Every Day” with Second Chance Toys Collection

In an effort to keep extruded plastic out of our landfills, Trailside Nature and Science Center of Union County, NJ started collecting plastic toys from visitors to the Center on Earth Day and for a couple of weeks thereafter. They donated the toys to the Union County Department of Human Services, Social Services Division, which serves 3,000 families in the area. Karen Inzillo, assistant director of Trailside was excited to work with Second Chance Toys on this program and hopes to do a similar collection in November, just before the holidays.
