Recycling Rally Recap for Costa Mesa School – Adams Elementary

By teaming up with Orange Coast College and the Adams Elementary School PTA, Costa Mesa real estate company Torelli Realty helped to educate the students at Costa Mesa’s Adams Elementary School about the importance of being green by hosting the Cans for Kids (And Plastic Bottles Too!) Rally. After giving the kids a presentation on the 3 R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle), the students were challenged to recycle on campus and they were rewarded with money for their school.  We’re so proud of the students for their efforts – in just one week they raised $65 for their school just by recycling their aluminum cans and plastic drink bottles! That translates into 1,142 beverage containers!!! Adams Elementary School plans to continue recycling throughout the 2010-2011 school year and we’re excited to help them kick it off… What great role models for us all! By doing simple things like this for the environment, the children of Costa Mesa are really pitching in and making a huge difference. Our vision is to help all the Costa Mesa schools with similar programs. Please contact Holly at Torelli Realty if you’d like more info on how to do this program at your Costa Mesa School.

Costa Mesa Mesa Verde Garage Sale – Take Our Poll!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Annual Mesa Verde Garage Sale. This year was our largest turnout ever with 163 homes! On Saturday, May 15, 2010 the deal hunters were out in droves. By the time was over at 2pm, we heard lots of great feedback and success stories.

We’re often asked why we sponsor a neighborhood garage sale and how it relates to real estate. Here’s why:

-Neighborhood events foster community spirit

-It’s a great way to clean up the neighborhood

-Cleaning up your home is a great way to clear out the clutter

-People who are planning to move often want to reduce the amount of items they need to move

-Plus, Holly Schwartz notes that it’s a form of recycling because the items can be reused by their new owners

Everyone has been so grateful for the mass advertising efforts of our Mesa Verde Garage Sales and the crowds they attract so we’d like to bring it to other nearby neighborhoods.  Where should we go next?
