"Holiday Waste Campaign”
Recycling With a Sense of Purpose
WHO: 4 Heroes 4 Life in partnership with 501(c)3 Veteran Adventures Inc urges citizens, schools, organizations, and businesses to become a legacy in their communities by doing their part to clean the environment for generations to come, and putting much needed funds into healing programs for our nation’s heroes and their families.
WHAT: Recycle4OurHeroes (R4OH) is calling on Schools (students), Organizations (members), Businesses (employees) and Communities throughout the state of California to collect CRV (California Redemption Value) Aluminum Cans & Plastic Bottles to embrace Recycling With a Sense of Purpose through our unique and effective ‘sort at the source’ system from Scandinavia, world leader in household waste reduction.
Over $200-$300 million a year of CRV funds in California alone goes unclaimed. That’s 1.6 million beverage containers NOT being recycled in California EVERY DAY. We are determined NOT to allow those bottles and cans to end up in our landfills and oceans when they can be used for Genuine Goodwill. Let’s Turn Trash into Cash!
WHEN: 2017 Holiday Season beginning October 1 through January, 2018
WHERE: All Counties in the State of California
WHY: We believe this is the solution to the challenges of Keeping America Beautiful, Greening Up California, as well as funding much needed programs for our nation's heroes and their families. In 2016, Californians purchased 23 billion bottles and cans, yet only 18.4 billion were returned into the recycling ecosystem. We are asking for your help to follow ALL the Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover) With a Sense of Purpose.
Let’s put this “anyway money,” which has already been spent, to good use funding life-sustaining programs for our HEROES COMMUNITIES. We will fund existing programs as vehicles to provide healing for our Heroes as well as develop our own signature healing programs.
*** Here’s How to Help Us, Help Yourselves, and Help the Planet With a Sense of Purpose. ***
Let’s Join Forces to effectively raise funds for
our heroes and for your group or organization!
The concept is simple: TAKE A BAG - FILL IT UP - RETURN IT.
Here’s how it works: Fill up 500 bags with bottles and cans at about $5 CRV redemption per bag = $2500. Subtract the cost of bags at $1/each ($500) and take 50% for Your Organization = $1000 of “anyway money” for your program!
STEP 1: Join Recycle4OurHeroes “Holiday Waste Campaign.” Coordinator accepts delivery of collection bags for plastic bottles and aluminum can recyclables during the Holiday.
STEP 2: Announce Programs, members take 2 bags home, commit to bringing them back full following the Holiday.
STEP 3: Collect Recyclable Materials on the first day back at school, work, or days following.
STEP 4: Drop-off Point to bins at your location for members to drop off bags, 1 for bottles and 1 for cans.
STEP 5: Recycle4OurHeroes will have the Recyclables picked up by a pre-designated Recycling Facility.
STEP 6: Redemption Value is determined.
STEP 7: 50% of redemption value will be committed to your organization as a fundraiser and 50% to our cause.
