Eyeglass Recycling (to benefit The Lions Club)

Now until June at TEMS Office

Changing Lives, One Pair at a Time - In just about any home, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used; that same pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life. That's why we started the Lions Recycle for Sight program. Everyone can help. Throughout the year, Lions, Leos and other volunteers collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers (LERCs). LERC volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses. Recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in low and middle income communities where they will have the greatest impact. Donate glasses and change someone's life. Imagine if you could help a child read, An adult succeed in his job, A senior maintain her independence. And provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive. Everyday, our recycled eyeglass programs do all of this and more.

Recycle Mattresses at Ikea 

Each year, an estimated 15 to 20 million mattresses and box springs are disposed of in the U.S., according to the Mattress Recycling Council. Each day, 50,000 mattresses end up in landfills or are illegally dumped. Due to their size, mattresses take up lots of valuable landfill space and are difficult to compress. This new national program is part of IKEA's People and Planet Positive Sustainability strategy that was launched in October 2012. It shows a commitment to make mattresses easier for consumers to recycle.
