In 2019 we started organizing an oral care drive, collecting old toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, dental floss holders and the packaging. We are sending the dental care products to Terracycle where they will be recycled.
Drop off locations: Lake Forest Recreational Center, Gorton Community Center, Lake Bluff Library

Confused about what you can recycle? You are not alone. Green Minds LFLB has developed a recycle app to help residents better find local sustainable recycling options.
In our efforts to reduce and recycle Green Minds LFLB regularly help educate on proper recycling as well as organizes collections of items we can divert from the landfills. In Fall 2019 we collected old t-shirts that we sew into reusable produce bags. Read more about it on this link
In Spring 2015 Green Minds LFLB partnered with Swalco and Kiddles in Lake Forest. We successfully collected over 100 pairs of shoes, which Swalco repurposed, upcycled and recycled. Thus reducing the number of shoes ending up in the landfills.
In our attempt to reduce the amount of landfill waste and tax payers money Green Minds LFLB partnered with the City of Lake Forest to teach residents how and what to recycle. In Spring 2015 we revamped a recycle display for the City and during the Summer of 2015 Green Minds attended several Farmers Markets with the Display. We also used the opportunity to promote the composting at home and sell the Earth Machines for the City of Lake Forest.
Green Minds LFLB and the City of Lake Forest received a lot of compliments and thanks for helping people understand recycling better.
