YOU can help Green Up.earth, both directly and indirectly: to better your environment, your community, your business.
Items needed for our mission. Any DONATION of the items themselves, FUNDS to attain them, or USE of items you might have is appreciated!
We NEED a truck for transportation of large items and those areas that have been used for dumping of construction/business waste (TVs, Tires, tiles....) and significant collection efforts to Transfer Stations. We currently are using part of a van and small car to transport items.
Gas NEEDED: to get to and from locations, to transport items to local dumps/transfer stations.
Deer cart or collapsable beach/trail wagon NEEDED for hiking trails and beach collections.
Garbage bags, large, heavy duty (been using DG 52 ct, 30 gallon extra strong $8.95 but they're really not strong enough).
Lime green road chalk paint ($4.98 at Lowes).
Work gloves (been using disposable non-latex medical type but they're too hot and thin for this type of work. Garden gloves aren't disposable or protective enough for some of the items!).
Grabbers ($9.88 at Walmart: they wear out/break).
Tarp (to cover/protect inside of van).
Fishing Net with Telescoping Handle- Collapsible and Adjustable for collection in waterways: lakes, streams, ditches, etc. ($22.63 at Walmart).
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP
to come out and join us in this endeavor for an hour, an afternoon... it all helps and we'd love to meet and spend time with others that share the same values!
to transport items collected to your local transfer station or to include in your weekly home trash collection (We don't reside in some areas/counties that need our attention and it costs $money$ to take items to dumps if not a resident of that county).
to work on the "advertising aspect" of this project including updating the website and other media (we are really newbies at this and would appreciate help in this area too)
