Recycle Radio: Making the Most of Yard Sales and Flea Markets
It's an average weekend in Small Town (or Big City), USA. If there isn't a monsoon, blizzard or temperatures below zero, chances are, you'll find a yard sale or flea market somewhere in town. (And even if they are in the forecast, there are always the indoor flea markets, which operate rain or shine!)
Yard sales and Flea Markets have become a big business for a lot of people. What started out as a way to clean out a closet or basement has turned into a way of life - and full-time occupation - for some people. And for those who prefer selling online, they've become a virtually endless supply of inventory for eBay, Amazon, and Craigslist. Today on Recycle Radio we'll be sharing some hints on how to make the most of shopping at a yard sale or flea market.

there is a tremendous untapped economic opportunity in what's known as "green" technology. Companies that expect to succeed in the future need to figure out how to recycle whatever product they create so that it does not become garbage. They need to figure out how to turn existing trash into treasure. They need to participate in the drive to clean up the Earth for future generations. That's the great challenge of today, and for those entrepreneurs with a vision for how to do that, the sky is the limit in terms of economic opportunities,Ecofaire Enterprises is fortunate to be on the cutting edge of such visionary thinking.Stan Shlyapochnik shares how an ecology conscious person can enter a growing industry and excel beyond their imagination
The average person produces over 4 pounds of trash every day, and about 1.5 tons of solid waste each year. While some 75% of it is recyclable, we only follow through on about 30 percent.*
So, now that it’s time to do that spring cleaning, our guest says it is the perfect time to go room by room and see what we can “upcycle”. Better still, she’s got advice on how to get the kids involved.
Green living expert and author Sara Snow joins us now.
Good Morning, Sara!
1. Sara, let’s start with the room we spend most of our time in, the kitchen. What can we be recycling there that we may not be doing already?
2. It’s tough to get kids to part with their toys, even when they’re broken, but now there’s a way to recycle them and get our kids excited about helping the planet at the same time, right?
3. What about the living/ family room? What kinds of items can be reused from there?
4. Sara, what about the electronics in our house? When they break or we don’t need them any more we can recycle those as well, can’t we?
5. Where can we get more information?
Trish has spent a lifetime around the development, internal operations and ever-changing dynamics of the thrift store industry; learning much about the business from her grandfather, Walter D “Bud” Ellison, who was instrumental in launching the ARC Thrift Stores in Colorado in the 1960’s. Trish began working directly in the thrift store and secondary material recycling industry in 1996.
Patricia launched Snow Lion Inc., one of the first e-commerce used book businesses, in 2003. Just four years later, she founded Cycla, LLC, thrift recycling professionals, to address the recycling needs of thrift and consignments store owners, commercial laundries, textile clothing manufactures, and most recently the county prison systems.
While her businesses were environmentally impactful, Trish was missing the local community connection and charitable component she grew up with in her family’s businesses. So, in 2011 she started Recycle That, LLC, to combine textile material collection with the opportunity to raise funds and give back to local non-profit organizations.
Recycle That connects communities to recycling by reusing and repurposing its goods. The company forms community partnerships with non-profit organizations to create a sustainable funding source to support their causes. Via donation centers, collection box programs and special events, Recycle That enables its charitable partners to collect used textiles as a means of fundraising. Current partners include, Habitat for Humanity Restores, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Hospice of Saint John, American Heart Walk, and local faith based communities.

"The Jinx" is now playing on HBO, featuring Robert Durst the heir to the Seymour Durst Fortune. Years ago I did a profile on Kathleen Durst , Robert Durst's wife. I have the original notes and will be discussing her disappearance from 1982. Along with new approaches that I learned during the time period that Kathy has been missing like maps, locations, death and danger zones and the number of the day. WHAT HAPPENED TO KATHY DURST? What happened to Robert Durst's mother? Charts reveal these myasteries very clearly.
I will reveal the mystery behind Robert Durst and some of the things he said during the interviews with the producers of The Jinx. Why some of the things he said are so important.
I have also told you that souls recycle and come back to their families and I believe we may be seeing this in the McCormack Family as proof. Listen in and see what I am talking about Wednesday March 18, 2015 at 6:30pm EST. You will be fascinated in the information.

What will be the future of our growing Green Economy and focus on recycling, reuse, solar and green living? Is trash still a treasure for those that recycle as a living? Can any individual live off of the underground economy or has modern technology and economics ruined the prospects of further growth? What is the value of metal, gold, silver, paper products, glass bottles and cans. Has the CRV program and subsequent taxes negatively affected profits or successfully funded local initiatives. Is playing the lottery a wise or useful business or income making strategy?
