Action Alert
April 19, 1999
Challenge Congress to Recycle!

Dear Concerned Citizen:

Here's a small thing you can do for Earth Day:

Contact your Representative to Congress and ask him or her to endorse and vote for House Resolution 146. Introduced on Earth Day 1999, this bill would REQUIRE the House of Representatives to recycle!

Does it upset you that Congress does not apply the same standards to itself that we expect from the rest of society? Perhaps if Congress tried recycling they would be more likely to end the billions in welfare for waste that undermines recycling!

H. Res. 146 was introduced by Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA) and cosponsored by two Democrats (Doggett - TX, Blumenauer - OR) and three Republicans (Gilchrest - MD, Porter - IL, Shays - CT).

To CALL your representative:
Dial the Capitol Switchboard - 202-224-3121

To EMAIL or WRITE your representative:
Go to

Also consider writing a letter to your local
newspaper. Below is the press release issued today by Rep. Sam Farr's office. The release includes a quote from the GrassRoots Recycling Network and a reference to the Welfare for Waste report (which can be downloaded at ).
