Youth Garden Project in Moab
We just received a wonderful response to our last blog entitled “Exploring Moab”. The folks from Visit Moab Utah wrote us to share the sustainable efforts going on in Moab – and there are many! Keep reading to find out more.
http://www.moabrecycles.com is so progressive in the Moab community. Monthly, there is a paper drive for wrapping paper, cereal boxes, beer cartons, paper rolls, magazines, and egg cartons. Annually, there is a battery and electronics recycling day.
Sara Melincoff of http://www.moab-solutions.org organizes volunteers for litter pick up and sorting at the recycling center. She is the entity responsible for pairing recycling bins with the downtown trash barrels and is happy to help with event recycling.
WabiSabi is a second hand store that has a business model that takes profits and doles them out to partnering non-profits through votes achieved by the shoppers.
Youth Garden Project is a source of field trips for Moab’s Schools, teaching curriculum that matches the science objectives. They also have Saturday Farmers’ Market to sell local grown food. Several Moab restaurants buy local grown food too.
So thanks to Visit Moab Utah for sharing all this GREAT info!
