As the representative of California’s 10th Assembly District, I am pleased to hear about the new recycling efforts underway at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center, a hidden jewel in a Sacramento region that I proudly represent.
Through a new partnership between the American Chemistry Council, the American River Natural History Association, which oversees Effie Yeaw, and Keep California Beautiful, six new recycling bins will eventually be placed at key areas and three are already in use.
The bins look great, and I’m sure they will help boost the amount of materials that are recycled at the center, but I’m also glad they’re decorated with educational messages.
Thousands of school kids and families visit the center each year and the messages are a great reminder about the value of recycling.
As a mother of two, I know how important it is to set examples for our children. The lessons they learn today will pay big dividends for all of us tomorrow, particularly lessons about protecting and preserving our planet.
I would like to thank the American Chemistry Council, American River Natural History Association and Keep California Beautiful for bringing a recycling program to the Effie Yeaw Nature Center. And let’s all do our part to make our communities a little cleaner.
