"Green Chair Recycling is the present. Our community is so fortunate to have Green Chair with us. All the volunteers learn so much from being involved with the team. The experience is priceless. You can’t learn what Green Chair provides from textbooks, classes or the internet. I believe everyone deserves a chance to volunteer with them. I’ve volunteered in a variety of places and events, but Green Chair is on the top of my list of the best volunteering experience I’ve ever had!! The team inspired me to do a little bit more, help a little bit more, smile a little bit more and finally inspire a whole lot more of people who have not got the chance to know who Green Chair is."
