Capital Thespians Ridwell Project

Capital Thespians are partnering with Ridwell for a second time this year! Starting May 1, families can bring plastic film to CHS for collection. Once sent off to Ridwell, the film will be recycled into decking! Items like Ziploc bags, bubble wrap, and grocery bags count as plastic film! During the same period, if at least 10 families sign up for Ridwell with our link here, the school will gain one free year of plastic film recycling! 


Ridwell is a Washington-based subscription service that recycles not only plastics but also hard-to-recycle items like: food wrappers, bubble wrap, clothes, shoes, batteries, lightbulbs, and clamshell packaging. New items are cycled through every two weeks, further expanding the range of items that can be recycled. Ridwell provides you a box with fabric bags for each of the items. You’ll then collect these items over the two weeks between pickups. Once it’s time for pickup, you leave the box with the bags where they can be picked up. You can continue to reuse the bags and box each time. If you don’t need anything picked up, you can contact Ridwell to let them know. From there, the materials get transported to Ridwell partners all across the US to be reused/made into new items (learn more at this link here: Prices are $14 a month for the classic plan, $18 a month for the premium plan, and $24 a month for the unlimited plan! Getting Ridwell means keeping more materials out of the landfill!
