Will, great post! I liked the idea of free mulch, I have to check if there is such an offer here, too. I need a lot less than a full bag, the way they are available in the store.

My Lions Club participated in the Earth Day event hosted and sponsored by the City of Fremont this past Saturday. We spread the word about our used eyeglass recycling. Used eyeglasses can be deposited in several locations around town. We pick them up and after several processing steps, they will be taken by a group of volunteer Lions and Doctors to a remote location in Mexico or India or somewhere similar. The glasses will be matched with the prescription needed by the recipient who will get free glasses that they probably never could have received otherwise. For the recipients, it can be life changing.
