I wanted to let you know that SpinFish is coming back to Austin for SXSWEco in a few weeks! I am helping them with project management for their leftover trade show materials.
To date, SpinFish has helped SX save more than 26,000 pounds from the landfill and shared the items with thousands of Austin community members. We’d love to have another year of awesome results.
Interested in volunteering for the project? Or receiving some items so that we can keep them out of the landfill? Right now, we anticipate foamcor, canvas banners, paper handouts, wood pallets and promotional materials. New items will be added as we get closer to the actual event. Volunteers receive first pick of the items as a special thank you for your help.
Pick ups will be on the evening of Oct 11 (Tue) and on Oct 12 (Wed). If you’d like to be added to the potential pick up list, please provide me with your current contact information, items you may be interested in and availability. If you’d like to volunteer, please let me know your availability—we request a 3 hour commitment and we promise that the time will fly by!
Feel free to pass our contact information along to others that may be interested.
Many thanks! Blythe
