What to do with all those used Gift Cards

As the holidays approach, plastic gift cards are a popular gift item. According to Earthworks, “there are 3 billion new gift cards placed in circulation every year, with the potential to add 75-100 million pounds of PVC material to the waste stream.” You can recycle these cards after you use them by sending them to Earthworks c/o Halprin Industries, 25840 Miles Road, Bedford, OH 44146.

Standing Room Only for Campaign Kick Off

Kim Stone Campaign 1_1Nearly 70 people came out to support my campaign for Highland Park City Council on December 2. I am proud to have such strong support at this early stage in the campaign.

Anne Flanigan Bassi, who has represented Highland Park on the Lake County Board for ten years, said, “We’re fortunate to live in a community where so many talented and experienced individuals volunteer their time and effort to making our community great. But even in Highland Park, what Kim brings to the table with the depth and variety of her skills and engagement in the community is unique.”

Thank you to everyone for your support.
