Cre­ative re­cy­cling

Milwaukee Health - - PERSPECTIVE -

Re­cy­cling is good for the planet, but it makes for happy peo­ple, too. Liv­ing with pur­pose and feel­ing part of some­thing larger are linked to health ben­e­fits for in­di­vid­u­als. Beyond re­cy­cling paper, alu­minum and plas­tic, get cre­ative, with greater com­mu­nity im­pact, re­cy­cling books, cloth­ing or cars. Do­nate used bi­cy­cles to DreamBikes, Mil­wau­kee Bi­cy­cle Col­lec­tive or the Mil­wau­kee Home­less Veter­ans Ini­tia­tive’s Bikes for Stripes pro­gram. Use Zap­pos for Good to ship gen­tly used shoes and clothes free to Nashville-based Soles4Souls. Roll used wheel­chairs, strollers, scoot­ers and walk­ers to the In­de­pen­denceFirst Mo­bil­ity Store in Wauwatosa (for­merly Wheel­chair Re­cy­cling Pro­gram), a non­profit aimed at mak­ing equip­ment ac­ces­si­ble for those who can’t af­ford it.
