Warming Up for 2012

2012 is picking up and it is looking very promising from the "spread the word" point of view!

We will be working on our projects to participate in the Brevard County Fair competitions: Recycling/Reuse Contest and The Art on a Rain Barrel Design contest. The Fair is from March 22dn through April 1st.

As part of our Recycle Brevard 101 initiative, starting on January 28th, Recycle Brevard! will be at the Suntree Outdoor MarketPlace on the last Saturday of every month to share information about the 3Rs in the county, bring materials that can be reused by vendors and customers, and collect recyclables at the market.

Also this month, we will start taking materials to share at the Really, Really Free Market of Melbourne that happens every last Sunday of each month in downtown Melbourne.

In February, we will start doing the same thing at the Brevard County Farmer's Market as we will be doing at the Suntree Outdoor MarketPlace . Recycle Brevard! will be there on the first Thursday of every month.

To kick off on the events side, on February 18th we will be participating of the Sykes Creek Adventures with Keep Brevard Beautiful. Sykes Creek Adventures is a family eco-festival to be held at Kiwanis Island Park from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on February 18, 2012. This event is chocked full of activities for folks of ALL ages. There will be food, music, boat rides (kayak and tour boat), exhibitors, hands on activities and MORE!

And we will continue to do what we have been doing since Recycle Brevard! was created, like the Pelican Beach Clean Up every second Saturday of the month, and the Keep Brevard Beautiful Central Chapter meeting every second Thursday of the month. Besides those, we will be doing the other annual events we participated/organized last year, other volunteering to help with different projects, and will try to create more opportunities to educate the little ones (pre-schoolers through 3rd graders) about recycling.

If you have other ideas or suggestions, drop us a line at info@recyclebrevard.org. We would love to hear from you!
