What is Earthub - Kingston?
Our newest initiative in Kingston is our, “Items to Keep Out of The Landfill” program. Earthub has implemented a program to keep items out of the landfill for reuse. We have various items we collect:
- Prescription pill bottles (donated to Matthew 25: Ministries to reuse as medical supplies – International)
- Mascara wands, wand part only (donated to a wildlife refuge to use as brushes –International ● 4L milk bags, flattened (outside bag, not bag holding the milk - donated to organizations to make milk bag sleeping mats for the homeless – local)
- Egg cartons (donated to many farmers – local)
- Air pillows, bubble wrap, packing paper and foam wrap (donated to businesses for packaging/shipping reuse – local)
- Swiffer/Febreze products (donated to TerraCycle – local)
- Dead writing instruments (brought to Staples in support of the TerraCycle program – local) ● Plastic bread and milk bag clips (donated to Earthub for a future project – local) ● Plastic bottle caps from water/pop bottles or tetra packs (donated to Earthub for a future project – local)
How it works:
- Collect the items listed
- Email your City's specific email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) to obtain the list of drop-off locations (drop-off locations are volunteer's homes, we never post them publicly for privacy reasons and we ask that you do not post them on any public forums!)
- Drop-off your CLEAN items in bulk
- Earthub Volunteers will make sure your items get to the end user as efficiently as possible!
The Kingston initiative is being run by Rebecca Hannaford and Stephanie Young who are very excited by Kingston’s response. The community, both businesses and individuals have been very supportive. In the first two months 23 volunteers joined Earthub as drop off locations.
Monetary donations help Earthub fund shipping, collection costs, and in spreading awareness. All of Earthub's costs come straight from our Founder's pocket! Earthub are dedicated to making a difference. Donations can be made to email@example.com.
