Experts: We are always in need of scientists, environmentalists, engineers, bloggers, social media managers, and others to lend their expertise to our effort. We gratefully accept advice and suggestions if you have an idea for how to improve our equipment or processes. Please join our Waste Free in ‘23 Facebook Group and post your ideas or interest there.
Volunteer in Person
Volunteers: Eco-voluntourism is a rewarding way to meet the wonderful people of these communities and learn about their way of life while offering assistance. Most of the micro-recycling centers would love to have your help in person. Some ways you might assist:
- coordinate a local Pencils for Plastics Drive
- collect waste
- operate equipment to make recycled plastic panels from plastic waste
- create products from recycled plastic panels
If you would like to volunteer in person, please post your interest on the Waste Free in ‘23 Facebook Group page.
