2011 Metro Atlanta Kids Recycle Day!

Recently I went to the Metro Atlanta Kids Recycle Day event hosted by Livethrive! I met Peggy Whitlow Ratcliffe Executive Director of Livethrive, Debbie Smith creator of the Idbids, and Rocky Kistner Communications Associate of NRDC. When I first saw the event promo I knew I had to get myself as well as other kids involved. I was curious how they recycled the items, so I contacted Peggy through e-mail. She explained to me the process that they go through to recycle. I thought it was so great that they were doing this, so I decided to go around my neighborhood and put up flyers promoting the event! I wrote down a few questions to interview Peggy, to help kids understand more about recycling. Peggy and Debbie were so helpful and nice and they had great answers!
