It's here!!!

Hey everybody! Sorry it has taken so long (technical difficulties), but Slash the Trash now officially has a blog! Hopefully you got my email letting you know; thanks to you guys who signed the pledge to "slash your trash" the project is finally underway.  For those of you who are curious about our progress, here's what's been going on....
  • We have almost 150 signatures on the pledge sheets promising to "slash their trash".  That's good, but I know we can do better!
  • Slash the Trash has been featured in the local Purcellville Gazette newspaper, hopefully raising more awareness about what we're doing.
  • In case you haven't seen me, I've had a table set up at the Farmer's Market almost every week and the Purcellville Tag Sale trying to spread the word!
  • And we were going to have a table set up at the Safe Halloween event put on by Loudoun  Valley High School with Halloween recycling crafts for the kids; the event has been canceled due to the storm, but I'll try to post the crafts here!!
What you can do...
  • Tell your friends and neighbors about Slash the Trash and encourage them to get involved.
  • Keep working on reducing your own waste and recycling more in your house; if you need a recycling bin or lid, you can pick one up for free at the town hall.
  • Look up Slash the Trash on Facebook and like the page.
  • Whatever you're doing, just keep the 3 Rs (reduce, reuse, and recycle) in mind.
Thank you all for your support, without you Slash the Trash would never have been able to get started.  I'll keep you as up to date as I can and share as many of the awesome ideas I can find, so check here as often as you can!
