EXPLORE YOUR ECO-PORTAL: www.ecocycle.org
At ecocycle.org, you'll find everything you need to know to recycle, compost, reuse and live as sustainably as possible in Boulder County. We have many local resources, and you'll find them all here! Plus, our site now has a fresh new look, easier navigation, and more ways for you to take action for a healthier planet.
Here are our top 9 web tools for you!
Scroll down our list of 160+ items for how to recycle just about anything in an eco-friendly way in Boulder County and beyond at www.ecocycle.org/a-zguide. And we still have all the great information you're used to getting from us, like recycling and composting guidelines, maps to recycling centers and other recovery facilities, and much more.
With all the greenwashing out there, how can you be sure your “eco-friendly” products are the real deal? Cut through the false claims with products from our Eco-Store: We have 600 (and growing) people and planet-friendly products like non-toxic cleaners, Zero Waste Party Kits, compostable tableware, eco-friendly baby & kids products, and more. Best of all, a portion of every sale goes back to Eco-Cycle's Zero Waste programs in our community. Visit us at www.ecocycle.org/ecostore.
On a single planet with seven billion people, we simply don’t have the raw materials for everyone to own one of everything. Enter our Swap and Share Portal, a list of resources to do things like rent out space in your house, barter garden vegetables or odd jobs with your neighbors, borrow high-end jewelry for an evening out, or loan out your table saw. Find it all at www.ecocycle.org/share.
Whether you want to know how to green your pet, be an eco-parent, make a Zero Waste Home or bring your eco-ethic to every part of your life, our online Eco-Living Guide is your resource. Check it out at www.ecocycle.org/ecoliving.
Did you know every year 100 million trees are cut to make unsolicited mail? That’s the equivalent of deforesting Rocky Mountain National Park every four months. Stop the destruction and unwanted clutter with a free stop junk mail account at www.ecocycle.org/junkmail. It’s the best junk mail service available, and we’ve footed the bill to make it free for Boulder County residents and businesses.
