We realize that collecting Brita filters individually through the mail is inefficient and uses much more fuel than if filters could be collected locally and mailed in bulk to us. So we've set up a new Yahoo! Group so that supporters can meet others in their local area and arrange for collection/pick up.
This is your group to use. Think of it in the way you might use Freecycle or Craigslist. Use ordinary caution when dealing with people you don't know. It's up to you all to decide how to handle postage costs or other issues. But we just wanted to provide this forum to make it easier to connect.
Thus far, we've received 81 filters and created a new tally on the sidebar of the Take Back the Filter web site for those who are interested in keeping track. Please check the list. Is your state listed yet? We'd love to collect filters from consumers in every U.S. state and Canadian province.
