The Watchung Warren Green Fair was wonderfuL!  There were cars waiting in line to drop off electronics for recycling.  There was a veritable mountain of styrofoam dropped off, and another mountain of draperies and comforters and such.  The Watchung Green Team was there with a booth giving out tree seedlings; I brought home 5.  There was a booth with LE bulbs, another about solar energy, one about bees and what plants to plant to support them.  The Watchung Garden Club was there.  There was a book exchange; I brought home beautiful children's books in like-new condition which I will donate for socio-economically challenged families around the holidays.  And so many more tables I can't even remember them all.

It was FABULOUS!  It was AMAZING!  So many people who care about the environment!

I wish I could upload more than 1 photo.  The one I chose shows how the elecronics were stacked on pallets, then wrapped in plastic for shipping.
