Glass Act Recycling Awarded Healthy Communities Grant for Educational Videos

GLASS ACT RECYCLING—has been selected as a recipient of the Healthy Communities Grant by Keep Louisiana Beautiful, the State’s premier anti-litter and community improvement organization.

This year’s grant of $7,095 will support Glass Act’s educational center, The Looking Glass, with an 8-minute informative video with the singular purpose of educating the public to the reasons for recycling, the process, and the unlimited ways that glass can be repurposed.  The Looking Glass will be free and open to the public.  Those groups that benefit from the center include but aren’t limited to citizens dropping off glass, general visitors, local media, environmental groups, municipalities, and student groups of all ages.

“We believe this grant will enable us to reach thousands of residents in central Louisiana and, through informative video, change the trash disposal habits of all ages.  Glass does not decompose for over a million years, which means every glass jar and bottle saved from the landfill has an immediate impact on our environment.”

The success of this project will be demonstrated by our, well informed, citizens taking pride in their neighborhoods by recycling, repurposing and reusing glass.  Glass is Not Trash!
