      El Prado, NM

The Town of Taos,NM, where 1 in 4 children is under poverty level, has decided to close the Free Box where clothing and textiles are exchanged for free. Many people depend on this local resource and it provides a means to lessen the waste-stream going to the landfill. Please sign to help convince officials to re-open the Free box.

      Because when I donated items in good condition to CAV Thrift Store, the workers openly took those things for themselves. The Thrift box reaches needy folks directly.

      A great way to recycle items that otherwise end up in a dumpster.

      Reducing the waste stream and the carbon foot print should be priorities for Taos. The freebox is a small but important part of the solution, while at the same time offering additional economic, social and cultural benefits. There are ways to effectively and economically manage the freebox.

      I am signing this petition because I have seen hundreds and hundreds of people benefit from this community free box and am passionate about doing things to create less waste and recycling.

      The freebox is a place where Taos artists can find art supplies. You cut that off and the community dies out of off grid artists. These are the people who make Taos the beautiful place it is. Please don't destroy our culture. Reinstate the FREEBOX!
