Windy City Green Team Takes Charge

This past Earth Month, the Windy City Green Team, located in Evergreen Park, a Chicago suburb, held their first gently used plastic toy collection. They hit the ground running with the wind at their backs, and the result was an extremely successful collection of beautiful good-as-new toys. Patti Lynch, Cheryl Orlowski and Sue Smith worked together to make it happen.... from promoting the collection and a kickoff drive at one of their homes, to setting up a collection at Heather and Vine Florist, and cleaning and preparing the toys for delivery to a local organization. They continue to encourage others in the area to collect, including a Boy Scout going for his Eagle Badge. Patti Lynch noted, "We were so excited to get this effort going, and even more excited to see how quickly we could make a powerful and positive impact to help local kids and the environment."

Thank you Windy City Green Team!
