Recycled Fish
April 16, 2010

I attended a college that was known for it's enviromental practices. 30 years later, I found Recycled Fish and returned to my enviromental roots. We were studying Loon mortality in college, and it was found that part of it was due to them ingesting lead weights, due to fishing. At Recycled Fish, they promote the use of alternative non-toxic weights, as well as recycling, energy conservation, sustainable fishing, catch and release, and being a steward to our land and water resources. The list goes on, but I am a proud member of this organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am now what they call an "ambassador", and I give my time freely, when they need or ask for my help. I do not get paid for my hours spent. It is a rewarding experience for me.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I enjoy talking to people and telling them about Recycled Fish, especially the children. If we can make an impact with them now, they will be stewards of the land and water in the future.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have met Teeg Stouffer, who is the director, and numerous professional fisherman. I have also met local volunteers who have helped out in some of our events.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

I think if they had that kind of money, they would be able to expand there presence in all 50 states, and do more to tell people about how they too can be stewards of our land and water.
