We can be the change we want to see in our country – and that is exactly what Ziad Abichaker has been doing. He is now reaching out for all of us to act.

Dear Friends, Colleagues, Supporters:

For the last 25 years since I have been doing this environmental protection work a lot of people always asked me why don’t you collect the recyclables and process them? and my answer would always be “logistics is what drains the financial feasibility of recycling” you have to have government support to do it…But now I’ve decided not to wait for any government support (since it’s not gonna happen) and take matters to the supporting public…


[…] I am asking for your help in spreading the word about the Green Glass Recycling Initiative for Lebanon so we can raise enough funds to buy a recycling truck to close the loop of recycling and environmental protection without having to wait or resort to government support. We can do this one-to-one. Please spread this message within your online network of friends and environmental protection supporters…We have managed to raise about 12% of 30,000$ but we need to fulfill that goal before December 9. Appreciate any help you can give.

Be strong enough to stand alone. Smart enough to know when you need help and brave enough to ask for it.

Ziad Abichaker
