Collecting magazines from libraries and babysitting clubs

I just spoke with a gentleman who heads the town recycling efforts; recycling is mandatory. So we just had a long chat and I was asking him about different ideas for posting information about Magazine Harvest, and he said my best bet is to talk to the director of the whole library system. So, I am going to be in touch with him early next week. He said they get rid of so much paper at the library – books and magazines – and he said that the director is very environmentally conscious. He said that he would also be happy to help me out with doing some kind of posting on their website so that everyone in the community could maybe see the Magazine Harvest flyer, and perhaps we could say rather than put the magazines in your blue bin, bring them to a location that I could work out with this gentleman, and do it that way.

I was pretty excited because it’s a huge and prosperous town; a lot of people have families, so I think that would be really good to spread the word that way.

Another quick thing… my friend just emailed me that she put up a posting at her babysitting co-op, and I think that reaches out to about 100 mothers. I ordered a copy of the generic Magazine Harvest flyers so she could also post that at her other child’s babysitting website

So magazines coming from everywhere!
