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.
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.
