Mini-Recycling Center Dedicated on ‘America Recycles Day’

The new mini-recycling center in the library’s lobby was officially dedicated on November 15th. It’s one of three units purchased by TREES, Inc. and Baesler’s Market and donated for placement in several locations with high pedestrian traffic and strong support for environmental efforts. (The other two mini-recycling centers were placed in Vigo County Public Library and the main entrance to Baesler’s Market in Terre Haute.)

Joy Sacopulos, TREES, INC., spoke at the ceremony and presented certificates of appreciation to Library Dean Robin Crumrin, to Kristine O’Hare (Baesler’s Market) and to Paul Reed (ISU Recycling).

Movie Info This Changes Everything

Movie Trailer This Changes Everything[2:22]

from trailer:

Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller. Filmed over 211 days in nine countries and five continents over four years, THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.

Directed by Avi Lewis, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond.

Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.

What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world?
