Haiti Mission 2010-2020

We Still have HOPE for HAITI…do you?

Join us as we encourage and equip the men, women and children of the island nation to rebuild, restore and revive their land together. Every season we send small teams of dedicated workers to contribute their time, talents and treasured gifts to the local people of Haiti. By continuing our collaboration with local leaders, teachers, farmers and business people we help to make a difference in the lives of others! Be part of the team either as an adventurous traveler or remote supporter you’re needed to help change the tides and “Sow seeds of HOPE” in the lives of others!

We are also collecting PET (plastic) bottles for Solar water disinfection. These bottles will be collected while in Haiti to help cleanup the community, stop their chorlea outbreaks along with many other creative & gardening uses. Please recycle or even better stop purchasing used plastics bottles at home and remember those in Haiti.

By sending us an email with your contact information and message at info@ecocycling.org we will provide you with more details into our ongoing programs from “Here to Haiti”!

Weekly trash clean-up

Every week a group of ecocycling volunteers goes into our communities and cleans up litter on the streets. I’m sure you have seen streets in your town that are either neglected or not cleaned up after. It are these very streets that offer us an opportunity to make a change for the better in our communities and environments. So what our ecocycling clean-up volunteers do is so straight forward that anyone can take part. By simply using a broom and trash collector we help to make our streets a greener and cleaner environment!
If you would like to join the effort, get more information or would like to suggest another location please contact us at volunteer@ecocycling.com.

Promoting Recycling

Promoting Recycling

What’s New

The state legislature is considering multiple bills that will improve recycling in Pennsylvania. Two of these proposals will reauthorize Pennsylvania’s Recycling Fund which helps finance recycling programs across the Commonwealth. Another couple of bills will give counties the power to assess a fee on trash in order to fund countywide recycling programs. These pieces of legislation are critical to further protecting our environment, promoting recycling, and keeping reusable materials out of Pennsylvania’s landfills and incinerators.

How You Can Help

Email your state representative and senator today and ask them to support these important bills to fund Pennsylvania’s recycling efforts. Then, let your friends, family members and co-workers know about PennEnvironment’s effort to improve recycling in Pennsylvania.

Brief Summary

We all know that recycling is one of the quickest and easiest ways to help protect our environment.  That’s because recycling helps to keep recyclable materials out of our landfills and incinerators and makes sure that these resources are reused and turned into new products. It’s estimated that more than 20 million tons of waste have been diverted from Pennsylvania’s landfills and incinerators since 1988.

For many people, recycling is the first way that they learn about environmental protection and how we can help conserve natural resources.

So it’s critical that the state legislature take steps to improve Pennsylvania’s recycling efforts and reauthorize the state’s essential recycling programs. Currently, there are four bills pending in the Pennsylvania legislature that will either reauthorize the state’s Recycling Fund or reinstate funding options for Pennsylvania’s county recycling programs.
