Trash 2 Treasure Creative Reuse Center is Honored at Broward’s Everyday Green Expo
Broward County’s innovative Trash 2 Treasure, a non-profit promoting creative reuse and recycling, receives the Green Leader Award for its contribution to the county’s environmental mission.
Deerfield Beach, FL, November 14, 2015 – Broward County’s Everyday Green Expo, held in Quiet Waters Park, was a community event promoting all things eco-friendly. The event featured environmental exhibitions and education, eco-themed raffles, “green” giveaways, a recycling drop-off, a Florida-friendly landscaping tent, and much more. Trash 2 Treasure (T2T), a creative reuse and recycling center, was both an exhibitor and an honoree. T2T received a Green Leader Award, recognizing its important contribution to the county’s environmental initiatives, namely “inspiring communities to close the recycling loop.”
Located at Art Serve, 1350 E. Sunrise Blvd in Fort Lauderdale, T2T’s mission is to locate clean, reusable materials and redistribute them as valuable educational and artistic resources. Leona McAndrews, a T2T Volunteer, was thrilled to be a part of Saturday’s event. "We are honored at T2T to be a part of the Everyday Green Expo. It is a wonderful way for environmental and other groups to get together. The organizers from Broward County Parks and Recreation, Katie Hendrickson and Peter White, do a great job of putting the event together."
