Beyond the Bin
St. Anthony Parish in Cincinnati, Ohio has starting their own recycling program. One of the parishioners had recently discovered that nearly 50% of all trash could be diverted by being recycled or composted. Their creation care committee launched the Beyond the Bin program by installing a 96-gallon bin in an alcove near the rectory. Word spread through the congregation, parishioners have started to bringing in their own recycling, and the program has been embraced by the entire church community.
