Greener cleaners, pesticides alternatives and non-toxic body care, Metro's Healthy Homes booth is a great way for Master Recyclers talk about health and sustainability. Each year we join in on Metro's campaign and staff booths at county fairs, food harvests, homebuyers fairs and more. This year, (like many in the past) the person hired to coordinate was a Master Recycler. Nancy Nordman did an amazing job organizing, training and working alongside other Master Recyclers. Now she would like to thank those of you who joined in this year:
"As we wrap up a very successful outreach season with Metro’s Healthy Homes booth, I’d like to take the time to thank all of the incredible Master Recyclers who helped at events—Alicen Well, Jason Gozdecki, Mary King, Marlene Olveda, Sabine Hilding, Sara Harding Mihm, and Susan Unrein. You all did amazing work assisting with set up and take down, answering questions about toxics in the home, and providing helpful green cleaning alternatives. Each of you brought unique expertise and knowledge that was much appreciated to all of the events. I hope you had as much fun as I did petting dogs at Beaverton’s Bark for Life, playing a spin the wheel game with kids at Clackamas County Fair, and making green cleaner samples with families at N Portland’s Sunday Parkways. Without you, we would not have reached over 4,188 people in Clackamas, Washington, and Multnomah County this season!
Going into the holiday season, it seems even more important to take the time to simplify. I hope we can all embrace the “less is more” message and share our knowledge and tools with others.

We hope to see you (and many new faces) again next year!"
