"Green Chair Recycling made me see a world that is not so small, a community that is not so confined, that within every single person, no matter the age, gender and ability, the actual somebody exists and that each tiny action made by that somebody counts for something…something green. Every single time I volunteer with Green Chair through the rain and the chill of the Fall, the bone-chilling Winter, the still quite cold Spring and the warm, festive Summer, Green Chair Recycling is always bursting with such positive energy and to be honest, it is infectious to the point that I want to do more, give more and inspire more. I saw an opportunity in Green Chair, and it is the opportunity to do the right thing." Kiki Green (Green Team member), 2013
