The Latinx community makes up 22% of the Park City population and has historically been left behind in the environmental movement. Recycle Utah is grateful to have received a Park City Climate Fund grant from the Park City Community Foundation to support us in environmental outreach to the Latinx community.
Recycle Utah is committed to building a stronger and more trusting relationship with the Latinx community including them in our vision of empowering people to lead sustainable lives.
With the help of two Bright Futures students in 2021 we:
- Delivered 120 quality reusable grocery bags to replace single-use plastics disposables.
- Installed 160 LED bulbs to improve energy efficiency.
- Distributed 40 water filters to avoid the use of single-use plastic disposable water bottles.
- Brought our distribution programs to 6 locations, visiting places like the Christian Center of Park City and St. Mary’s Church.
