Reuse & Recycle

Plastic Collection: Plastic Bags

Plastic Bags: Continue to bring in your plastic so we can get additional free, with earned credits, Recycled Plastic Bag Benches from Trex. Thanks for bringing in only soft, clean plastic.


Plastic Collection: Bread Tabs

Our Social Action Committee is collecting bread tabs. We are helping Clean Up Give Back collect tabs for Danielle Cares for Chairs. Danielle has an industrial buyer that puts the tabs back into the manufacturing process for other products. The proceeds are used to purchase wheelchairs and prosthetics for kids in need. Danielle Cares for Chairs has supplied 13 kids in need by collecting nearly 7 million bread tags.

Plastic jars for your bread tabs are by the bins for collecting plastic: by the temple's front door and at the side door by the chapel.

For more information on either of these programs, call or email Phyllis Rubin, 708.848.6168,

Virtual Dinner with Pamela Tate, a Climate Reality Leader from Al Gore's Climate Reality Project

Click here to watch the recording on YouTube.

Celebrate Earth Day with us at dinner time! Join Pamela Tate, a Climate Reality Leader trained and certified by Al Gore and his Climate Reality Project, who will talk about the climate crisis and what individuals can do in their homes, communities, and at the federal and state level, while we still have a chance to stop the worst effects of global warming. According to the project, we have only until 2030—barely more than eight years—to reverse the worst effects of the warming of Earth’s atmosphere. This is why it is imperative that everyone learns about the extent of the crisis and what can be done now!

Another Food Ingredient to Watch Out For

We can impact climate change by avoiding foods made with palm oil because the way it is grown leads to deforestation. A lot of foods use palm oil, including candy. But dark chocolate does NOT! Note the ingredients in the foods you are purchasing!
