The Big Green re-USE-it! Bin

I stopped off at Wegmans (a chain of grocerry stores located in the North Eastern part of the US) tonight in Ithaca and found this huge green bin in the lobby. I mean it's huge, almost like a wooden dumpster.

It's a "re-USE-it bin" -- the store places clean items that they no longer need, with the hopes that their customers might find a need for some of the items. Tonight there was a huge garbage can, some plastic bowls, and some muffin holders -- all for free!!! Here at Climate Change 101 we like free!

This is a great program, and we are lucky to have it here in Ithaca! I'm not sure if this is just a local thing or if it's at all the stores? I did search their site and could not find any other information.

If you are in Ithaca make sure you check it out on your next trip to the market!
