IndyBar Offering Free E-Cycling Event

In conjunction with its Green Legal Initiative, the IndyBar's Go Green Committee is sponsoring a Drive-Thru E-Cycling event open to IndyBar members and the public, on Friday, August 24, 2012, from 8 a.m. to noon, at Computer Experts, 101 E. Michigan Street. IndyBar volunteers will accept business and household electronic waste-computers, scanners, printers, cell phones, microwaves, VCRs, DVD players, game systems, and other recyclables-for recycling by RecycleForce.

Information on how to prepare your old electronics for recycling can be found here. Access a complete list of recyclable materials by clicking here. Special thanks to our partners for this event: Computer Experts, Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, ExpressMR, ICC Business Products and WDD.

Use this free event as a way to kick off your participation in the IndyBar's Green Legal Initiative!
Legal businesses can join the Green Legal Initiative by submitting a one-page application and pledge indicating that their business is committed to engaging in greener business practices. With the application or at any time after becoming a part of the initiative, members can choose to elevate their Green Legal status by submitting an optional Green Business Practice Certification indicating compliance with specific green business practices in six categories: Water Conservation, Energy Conservation, Recycling, Waste and Paper Reduction, Purchasing and Community Involvement.

Members submitting applications or certifications by September 1, 2012, will be recognized by the IndyBar at the annual Recognition Luncheon and on the IndyBar website, and will also be provided with the IndyBar Green Legal logo for print and electronic use. Members are also eligible for recognition by the Indianapolis Bar Association Go Green Committee for outstanding achievement. Click here to learn more about the Green Legal Initiative.
