I believe that Curtis Lee and the not for profit Hospice Society thrift store is an Eco Hero. Curtis has initiated and endeavours to recycle as much as possible that pass through the store. Each day the store receives an enormous amount different items. At this time the store recycles cardboard boxes, metal, electronics and a huge amount of clothing. The store also donates to other charities such as the Mission Society who sends the items over seas. Recycling is not an easy task but Curtis feels it is the stores responsibility to reduce the amount of things that lands up in our landfills and thus reduce our carbon foot print.
Curtis was nominated by a member of his team to be an Eco-Hero!
