Thanks CoolMom Volunteers!

Thanks to CoolMom volunteers for making our car seat collection day at the Sustainable Ballard Festival a success!

We collected 161 seats - 18 to be reused and 143 to recycle. That's a lot of seats diverted from the landfill. Well done! They were all stripped before we closed the trailer door by the end of the day. This was no small feat if you've sat down with a moldy car seat recently...

The car seat collection project is a pilot for the recycler we are working with to learn more about how to handle car seats. CoolMom's program team hopes to use information from this event to build a more permanent and on-going solution.

It was a very satisfying day talking to folks who were so grateful for a green way to dispose of their car seat in the Seattle area. Thank you again to our wonderful volunteers for making this possible!
