Even though Russell St. construction clogged up traffic around Russell & Wyoming, it didn’t bog down reuse as much as we might have thought. When all was was dug up and laid back down, you still helped keep 889 tons of reusable building materials at work in the community and out of the dump last year. That’s only 2 percent less than 2017, which was to date our biggest year for reuse.
Thanks for keeping the wheels of reuse spinning, Missoula! Let’s keep tipping the scales toward Zero Waste in 2019.
Speaking of reuse…you know about the BYO bag program at Lucky’s Market? Well we’re a Lucky’s Market Bags for Change donation program nominee. Voting opens on Monday and continues through January 14th. The three organizations with the most votes at the end of the voting period will be the next Bags for Change partners. Head to the Lucky’s Market Missoula Facebook page on Monday to cast your ballot in support of our Community Sustainability Programs and remember to bring your reusable shopping bags!
