Spring Trash Off
& Environmental Health Fair
KFMB Spring Trash Off &
Environmental Health Fair April 18, 2015
Trinity Forks Native Plant Society of Texas: Plant Sale
The Trash event starts with registration @ 8:30, in the Home Depot parking lot. We hand out supplies to volunteers and send them to various areas in Flower Mound (parks, trails, creeks, roadways) to clean up trash/recycles. Volunteers then bring back their findings and we provide lunch, the environmental fair, and door prize. Online registration is available onlinw.
All ages are welcome!
The fair includes kids activities and booths promoting positive environmental/healthy practices (indoor and outdoor) - water conservation, composting, gardening, native plant usage, healthy eating and exercise, ...
Shred-It will be providing free document shredding to residents of Flower Mound.
Best Buy will be collecting electronic waste - keeping it out of the landfill!
Christian Community Actions will be collecting gently used clothing and housewares and food for their pantry.
Carter Blood Care will be having a blood drive. Think about taking time to save a life and donate blood!
Girl Scout Troop 79 will be collecting gently used shoes - The average American has about 15 pairs of shoes, many are eventually discarded and end up in landfills. In an effort to reduce waste in local landfills, repurpose shoes for those in need, and help raise funds for a graduation trip to Greece in 2016, Girl Scout Troop 79 is collecting gently used shoes. All donated shoes are redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise partners in developing nations. Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families. Imagine, by simply cleaning out your closets and getting rid of unwanted shoes, you can make a difference in people’s lives!
The fair is open to everyone, whether or not you participate in the Trash Event!
If you have a business that promotes positive environmental practices or healthy living, consider having a booth at our fair!
