2014 Earth Day Extravaganza!

Earth Day is quickly approaching. We're incredibly excited about the impending festivities With that being said, we'd like to give you little glimpse into what you can expect if you're planning to attend the Porter County Earth Day event on the 19th.

1. Scrappy.

Our beloved turtle, Scrappy, will be making an appearance for a few hours. He'll be handing out his recycling activity books along with high fives and hugs.

2. T-Shirts.

Like last year, we will once again have Metro Recycling t-shirts available for those who sign up to be on our e-newsletter mailing list. Our e-newsletter keeps you up to date with current Metro events and offers customers coupons on their next visit. 

3. Capes.

A new give-away this year, Earth Day Hero capes will be available when you sign up for our e-newsletter. Those who sign up will get to choose between an awesome cape or a sweet t-shirt. How will you ever choose?!

4. Coupons.

We'll be giving visitors to our booth a 5 cents more per pound on their aluminum cans when they visit either of our Indiana locations. 

5. Activity books.

Scrappy's awesome recycling activity books. With word searches, mazes, coloring pages and much more you'll have hours of entertainment wrapped into one fantastic book. 

So there are 5 great reasons why attending the 2014 Earth Day event is a fantastic idea. As if you needed more incentive to come, the first 300 families through the doors will receive a reusable bag, you'll get a chance to win a new bike, you'll get to visit 80 other exhibitor booths, meet other mascots and much, much more! So mark your calendars for Saturday, April 19th and come out to the Porter County Expo center between 9am and 4pm to enjoy this great event!
