I love how things come together fortuitously. Recently, I was chatting with friends in the social media world about all the projects I have been doing – and want to do – around the house. A big one for this fall includes painting my bedroom – the first time it will be done in the 16 years we have owned this house – eeks. And the other was a massive cleanout of our garage that had been filled from floor to ceiling with leftovers of actually living in this space for 16 years. I had been pondering what to do with old paint, and my friends pointed me to PaintCare.
- PaintCare is the organization that oversees the official paint recycling program in Colorado and eight other states across the U.S.
- PaintCare’s goal is to teach people in Colorado to “Buy Right” – which means to buy the right amount of paint; to “Use it Up” – which means to find ways to use up leftover paint; and “Recycle the Rest” – to recycle unwanted paint.
- There are more than 145 sites for Coloradans to recycle their paint.
Awesome! Where have you been all of my life?
But it gets better…
