A Fundraiser for the Chicago Recycling Coalition
at the beautiful, Gold LEED certified
Logan Square Kitchen
featuring the film documentary "Scrappers"
and a lot of conversation about the eternal questions:
When is my block going to get blue carts?
Why do I have to schlep my recyclables to a drop off site?
Why can’t Chicago recycle???!
Do you have something to say? Do you want to hear what other people have to say? Do you want to be part of a new game plan for a new administration? Stop by on August 18 at 6pm. You'll meet people who have been fighting for recycling in Chicago for twenty years and people who just moved into town and can't believe that recycling isn't recognized as a basic city service. You will have a chance to talk with Chicago Recycling Coalition board members about how we can mobilize to get an efficient, socially fair recycling program instituted in Chicago.
It'll cost you a double sawbuck. (That's $20)
But you'll get popcorn and a movie. We'll also have beer and wine for you to buy. (You won't find that at the Cineplex.) The film is “Scrappers,” a documentary about two metal scavengers in Chicago searching for a living with brains, brawn and two battered pickup trucks. Roger Ebert gave the film 3 1/2 stars. You'll get to meet the film makers and discuss their work.
And you can recycle your computer stuff!
