2014 Environmental Odyssey: You can make a difference!
Dear Friends and Members,
The Environmental Co-op Annual Environmental Odyssey - an educational program for more than 750 Terrell, Kaufman and Scurry 2nd grade students that will be held next week on March 4th and 5th, 2014 at the Rockwall and Brin Church of Christ,
407 N. Rockwall St., Terrell, Texas, 75160.
The event is geared to promoting environmental awareness to Kaufman County’s students through fun-filled education about recycling, water conservation, composting with earthworms, wildlife and many more. Most importantly, an anti-littering campaign bestows general awareness of the responsibility each one of us has regarding littering –education that helps to influence habits in our young people in order that they might make conscious decisions as adults.
Environmental Co-op, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, needs your help:
1- Volunteering for this event
2- Considering any donation for
this educational event
3- Or helping us to find either volunteers or sponsors
We would be pleased to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to call us at any time at 972-524-0007.
Thanking you in advance.

From Marilyn's Desk...
To all my friends,
After twelve wonderfully
fulfilling years working and building Environmental Co-op I have made the
decision to take on a new challenge in my work life. As of March 1st I will no
longer be the Executive Director of what we all affectionately call "the Co-op".
My decision has not been an easy one or without much thought. As I thought about
what was needed to continue on the organization I felt new ideas and enthusiasm
would enhance our organization and with those thoughts I made my decision to
move on to another phase of my life. I am staying in recycling and will be an
Independent Recycling Consultant. I will continue to work with the Co-op in that
capacity and hope to continue to find homes for the recyclables that are
collected throughout the community.
Please remember that your recyclables help
fund the fine work the Co-op does. Please use the recycling opportunities that
are available through the Co-op and if you are not a member signup today. It is
the most affordable membership to support the environmental health of your
community, your children's and grand-children's environmental learning
experiences and the cleanliness of your roads and highways.
Best to all of

Tuesday’s election on Mar 4th, can be brought to the Kaufman County Recycling
Plant located at 1100 Airport road in Terrell from 7:30am – 3:00pm M-F. This
will reclaim several tons of plastic and cardboard for recycling, keeping it off
the side of our roads and out of landfills; help support local environmental
education and recycling efforts; and help keep Kaufman County and its neighbors
Clean and Green!
