TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – A grant from a local philanthropic group will help promote recycling.
100+ Women Who Care presented $14,000 on Wednesday to ReThink, Inc.
The money will be used to build a space for the group’s headquarters, which will also serve as a recycling center and zero-waste shop.
“We need to do things sustainably. We need to reduce trash. We need to reduce plastic. We need to figure out how to reduce trash, how to repurpose things, how to recycling things. Recycling is really lacking in our city, so we have to figure out different ways to recycle trash,” says Shikha Bhattacharyya, President of ReThink, Inc.
ReThink is a local non-profit that encourages environment-friendly practices in the Wabash Valley.
The group is still fundraising to build its headquarters. If you’d like to donate or learn more about the organization, click here.
