Like a Boss: Recent grad, Habitat project featured on NBC 26

We told you here recently about UW-Green Bay alumna and Habitat for Humanity ReStore volunteer and resource coordinator Chiara Boss, who has been spreading the word about the store’s holiday lights recycling program. On Jan. 1, Boss and the program were featured in an “NBC 26 Cares” segment that talks about why it’s important to recycle. “Holiday lights that are thrown into our landfills pose a threat to our wildlife,” Boss said. “Animals can choke on the strands of lights or get tangled by them, and then it also takes about 100 to 1,000 years for these lights to decompose.” As of Friday (Jan. 3), the ReStore already had collected more than 4,000 pounds of old holiday lights. You can check out the full NBC 26 segment, as well as our UW-Green Bay News story about Boss and the program, here:
