Close the Loop, LLC is the winner of the 2011 Take Pride in America National Award for outstanding corporation for their volunteer service from the Department of the Interior [DOI]. Close the Loop will be honored at The White House, The Eisenhower Executive Office Building, in Washington, D.C. on July 18th from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. with a reception afterwards.
Close the Loop, LLC is a company who's mission is to help preserve our environment by viewing our waste as a valuable resource, and to assist in the development and marketing of consumer recycled products which help cleanup the environment. As part of this Close the Loop has, for the past 3 years, organized Give and Take Days in coordination with Chestnuthill Township Park, Ross Township, West End Park & Open Space Commission and the Retired Senior Volunteer Program [RSVP].

The benefits of a Give & Take Day are many, including:
• Re-uses items instead of throwing them away
• Saves our natural resources & landfill space
• Items stay within community
• Saves money from purchasing new items ~ all items were FREE; Donations of leftover goods were sent to non-profit organizations, including the Salvation Army

• An estimated 40,000+ LBS have been saved from going to waste in landfills from the Give & Take Days
• Public is educated about new products made from our waste materials.

"I hope the idea for a 'Give & Take Day' spreads across our country. We kept hearing how great an idea this was and people loved it" said Rita Lacey, managing member of Close the Loop, LLC.
When organized properly, a Give & Take event benefits all in the community and CTL is willing to share the toolkit at no cost with any interested organization across the country to successfully hold their own Give & Take event in their local community.
"The value of a person isn't measured by how many things we have, it comes from how well we take care of our neighbor, our community, our earth" said Lacey.
Close the Loop was established in 2000 and prides itself as being an environmentally & socially focused company offering innovative recycled products: 100% recycled plastic split rail fencing, glass mulch, rubber landscape timbers and more. Close the Loop encourages people to view our waste as a valuable resource. By making products from recycled raw materials, the waste stream is reduced, saving energy, water, landfill space, and potential air pollution during product manufacturing, and is good for our environment, and the economy by creating much needed manufacturing jobs. 

Thanks for being part of the solution!
