185 Pounds of Batteries!!!

You read that right!  From October 2017 to July 2018, CFCC recycled 185 pounds of batteries!  Since we started battery recycling in Fall 2014, CFCC has recycled a grand total of 812 pounds.

We have just added two new battery recycling fixtures–one by the Port City Java in Union Station and one in the hallway of the NE building at North Campus.

You can find battery recycling fixtures in both the Wilmington Campus and North Campus Libraries, S-building second floor lobby, A-building second floor lobby, beside the Studio Theater in the Wilson Center, and in the hallway of the NB building at North Campus.

So, got some batteries rolling around in a desk drawer?  Drop them off and keep them out of the landfill!

STRAWS is an award winning documentary that illuminates the problems related with straws and other single use plastic pollution that inundate our waterways and ocean.

“I hope to get people thinking about how small habits can add up to huge impact. Removing plastic straws is a tangible, simple change people and businesses can do that truly makes a difference,” says filmmaker, Linda Booker

With colorful straw history animation and segments narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins, STRAWS (33 minutes) is funny and entertaining. The film leaves audiences with the clear understanding of the problems caused by plastic pollution. It illustrates how individuals, groups, business owners and leaders around the globe are reducing plastic straw use.

STRAWS won the Outstanding Achievement Award in Environmental Film at Cayman International Film Festival, and was called “An inspiring story of how it’s possible to make a sea of change, one straw at a time,” by the Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival.  See the Trailer
