Going for Green in Lyons
By Kathleen Thurmes
Eco-Cycle has been around for more than 40 years. The organization got its start when a CU graduate student was doing a project for Attention Homes, a local non-profit. He wanted to do a fundraiser on their behalf, so he collected and sold some aluminum cans and newspapers. He was content to complete that project and move on with his life, but a group of women, now lovingly referred to as the “Eco-Cycle Grandmothers,” knew throwing natural resources in the landfill was a waste future generations couldn’t afford. So they worked with the student to start the non-profit recycler that is now Eco-Cycle.
