The environment is a global cause of the Lions.  During the summer months, we volunteered our time to collect recyclable plastic wrap at area farmers markets, and with the help of some great community partners, we are able to continue!   We are partnering with local organizations and businesses to collect eligible plastic (see list below), and send them to the Trex decking company.  When we have accumulated and turned in 500 lbs of plastic, Trex provides us with a bench!  Through collaboration with local businesses and organizations, we are putting benches throughout Ohio County!
