$555 of $1,000 goal

30031730_15268745620_r.jpeg www.mcdef.org .  We're raising money to keep Styrofoam out of landfills and far away from our watershed.  Styrofoam takes many, many years to break down and is detrimental to our environment. By setting up collection sheds in McHenry County, IL, we are helping residents help us to re-purpose polystyrene. Donations go toward expenses for truck rental to pick up Styrofoam from our three sites in the county and for related expenses, such as gas and mileage.  Our volunteers dedicate a day each week to make the rounds and we all thank you for your support!  The Styrofoam collected at our sites get up-cycled into new products.

Our three sites are open and our volunteers are picking up full bags of Styrofoam weekly. We want to continue to keep Styrofoam out of our landfills for the foreseeable future. We will close this particular gofundme campaign on July 5. Can you help us get to $1,000!

To my Algonquin friends - did you know that The Environmental Defenders and Village of Algonquin partner to keep Styrofoam out of our landfills? You can take your clean Styrofoam of any color to our collection shed at 110 Meyer Drive (Algonquin Public Works) 24-7. And, if you can donate a little to our "Shed that Foam" fundraiser, we can keep this going for a long time!
