2014 Dallas St. Patrick’s Day Parade – Volunteer Recycling Team

Posted by youngsierrans on February 22, 2011

The annual 2014 Dallas St. Patrick’s Day Parade (on Greenville Avenue) is one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day parades in the country (~100K people, 100+ floats).  This iconic Dallas event creates lots of recyclable waste AND opportunity for fun!

This will be our 7th year (!!) to help make St Patrick’s Day in Dallas even greener!  We’ve collected over two tons of recyclable materials in that time and are seeking volunteers to join the 2014 Parade Recycling Team to help divert even more from the landfill!

Volunteers can collect recycling from parade viewers, stroll along with our entry to promote conservation and witness the craziness of Dallas’ St. Pat’s parade from inside the barricades.  Volunteers will receive spiffy green t-shirts, and a memory of a lifetime.

Eventbrite RSVP (select the Volunteer ticket): http://goo.gl/SYkqQV
