Recycling Hero

Do you know someone that has made a big difference in recycling? Has this one person been responsible for starting recycling in your school, business, or church? Do you know someone who is passionate about environmental issues? Does this person practice what they preach? Do they motivate other people to action as well? If so, they are our hero and we want to honor them!!! In observance of America Recycles Day we are conducting a contest to see who really is a Recycling Hero. If you know someone that fits the bill, let us know. Please make your nomination on line by Monday October 3, 2005 . If your hero wins, he or she will be notified by November 3, 2005 and presented with an award at the Met's ARD banquet.
