Trash to Treasure Teams with Haiti Orphanage to Provide Supplies

Recently, Trash to Treasure teamed up with the Renmen Foundation to get much needed supplies to Haiti.  A total of 1000 pounds of material from T2T went to vital projects in the distressed nation.

Much of the weight was for tile to be placed on a floor at Renmen's orphanage.  We also sent various medical and everyday supplies.

Watch the video to see what a difference we can make in the world with everyday discards.

City Link Beerfest 2010, December 3, Huizenga Plaza 6 -11

For the third year in a row, Trash to Treasure is teaming up with CityLink for Beerfest on December 3 at Huizenga Plaza in Downtown Fort Lauderdale from 6-11.

Trash to Treasure has once again be chosen as the nonprofit beneficiary of the event.

Since the event generates large amounts of recyclable material, T2T works with CityLink to facilitate recycling.  T2T volunteers collect bottles, cardboard, bottle caps, and wine corks from the event vendors.  Recycling containers are put out to collect the plastic sample cups.

SWS will recycle the cardboard and bottles.  Edge Logistics will recycle the sample cups.  Trash to Treasure will collect bottle caps and wine corks for reuse.

Last year,  we diverted 80% of the waste from the event.

T2T and drunk Santa hope to see you there.
