Mom’s 25 Year Celebration

The organic food store MoM’s at the Hollywood Shopping complex will celebrate its 25 years today and tomorrow.

The events include kid’s activities, free food, demos and live entertainment.

Mom’s will also host a major recycling event of electronic, jeans, shoes & glasses.

Electronics – This is the perfect time to clean out the closet and recycle old and unused computer parts and electronics at MOM’s! All types of electronics will be recycled responsibly by Capitol Asset Recycling of Beltsville, MD.

Jeans – MOM’s is collecting used denim and sending it to Phoenix Denim Recycling Facility in Arizona, where it will be recycled and manufactured into eco-friendly Ultra-Touch Natural Cotton Fiber insulation.

Shoes – Bring unwanted shoes (pairs or solo, new or old) to MOM’s to be recycled through July 31st 2012. Gently worn pairs will be donated to local charities. Seriously tattered treads will get a new lease on life courtesy of Soles-4-Souls.

Eye Glasses – MOM’s is collecting prescription glasses, sunglasses and reading glasses (child and adult sizes), plus plastic and metal frames. The glasses will be sent to the Lions Club in Arlington, VA, where they will be cleaned, categorized by prescription, packaged and shipped abroad to folks in need.
