What's Going On?
From Recycling Advocates, Thank you!
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and we have lots to be thankful for. We have wonderful members that share their ideas and keep us running in the right direction! If you aren't already a member, please join us by becoming a member. We have faithful donors who contribute directly to Recycling Advocates so we can continue to spread a strong waste prevention message. Please join that list with any level of support. And we have our employer based supporters that work with us through their EarthShare contributions. We are proud to be EarthShare members and we thank you!
We are happy to be working on our campaign to reduce the use of free single use checkout bags in Portland and throughout our region. Behavior modification is a difficult task, but we are making headway one less landfilled bag at a time. We thank all of our members and supporters for helping us as we expand this project.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday!

RA Founder Jeanne Roy to be Honored with SAGE Award
Recycling Advocates is one of many Northwest organizations initiated by Dick and Jeanne Roy. This November, the Roys will be honored as the first recipients of the SAGE Award. As full-time volunteers over the past twenty years, the Roys pioneered new approaches to influence and support thousands of people in Northwest communities to create a sustainable future. The Roys' service and leadership over the past two decades reflects SAGE’s mission – to inspire people over fifty to give forward with their time, talent and passion to benefit younger and future generations.
SAGE will celebrate the Roys' twentieth anniversary as full-time volunteers on November 21, 2013, at the World Forestry Center. Friends, colleagues, and business leaders will share remarks about the Roys' legacy of service, and Jeanne and Dick will speak about the significance of service in their lives.
Recycling Advocates would like to recognize and thank the Roys for their impact on recycling in the State of Oregon!
