We can hardly believe CHaRM opened 7 years ago today! In the last 7 years, we’ve reused/recycled/reengineered millions of pounds of materials!
We could not have made it without community support, hard-working staff, dedicated volunteers and board members!
In 2021, Live Thrive launched another major recycling initiative, the CHaRM Corporate Challenge. Working with Atlanta-based corporations, this challenge offers the opportunity for each company to have their employees drop off recycling at CHaRM from April 1-16, 2022. The purpose of this initiative is to create a collaborative effort to sustainably manage materials. The development of this community will result in creating a healthier environment and water system in metro Atlanta.
Participating companies will contribute to CHaRM’s overall 1 Million Pound Pledge to the Earth, which will culminate on Earth Day, April 22, 2022.
Current Corporate Challenge partners include Atlanta Hawks and State Farm Arena, Alston & Bird, Chick-fil-A, Inc., Community & Council Realty Group, Cox Enterprises, Delta Air Lines, EY, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Highland Mortgage, Interface, Monarch Private Capital, Novelis, Printpack, The Home Depot Foundation, UPS and Waste Management.
