I certainly support your efforts and am glad to have a list of the local businesses who welcome reusing and reducing. However, I would like to mention that not everyone is able to enter your contest because there are a still a number of old folks in the neighbourhood who do not use cellular phones. I know it is difficult for people to believe that there are folks like me in their 80s who still use only a computer and a landline. I'm not complaining as entering your contest is less important to me than reducing garbage; however, I did just want to make you aware of the facts. Thanks for your good work.
