Our Conservation/Environmental Watch Committee regularly encourages members to recycle and collects items for this purpose. A major project for the committee is working with a local Girl Scout troop collecting thousands of pairs of tennis shoes that are sent locally to a facility where they are recycled. FCGC was awarded a National Garden Club Federation Award in 2009 for this project.
Note: This Tennis Shoe Recycling Event for 2020 has been cancelled. The Nike store that accepted the shoes for recycling is not able to do so this year.
