Mike Morone of Rochester, NY is willing to go to great lengths to promote waste reduction – 300 miles to be exact. This summer, he plans to walk the distance while pushing a 50-gallon wheeled recycling bin over a 12-day period to promote Give Your Stuff Away Day, which he started as an annual event to get people to barter and donate their unwanted goods instead of trashing them. If you’re interested in sponsoring Morone’s 12-day green trek, please contact him at [email protected] or 585-749-5107.
