KCRAR held its annual Shred Day last week, raising approximately $2,736 for this year’s REALTORS® Rock the Block event with Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City. REALTORS® from around the region and their clients drove through the KCRAR office parking lot in Leawood, Kan. to safely dispose of their unneeded files at a small donation per box.

With each box of files being recycled after shredding, Shred Day participants recycled a total of 23,500 pounds of paper in total during the event, saving 199 mature trees from destruction. The event also offered eCycling for electronics, which totaled 1,108 pounds, keeping those materials out of the landfill.

“The best part of Shred Day is the positive impact it has on our KC community in a variety of ways,” KCRAR event coordinator April Lemon said. “We help declutter homes and offices while raising funds for Habitat for Humanity and have a positive environmental impact doing it.”

This event was made possible thanks to the sponsorship of ProShred and KCRAR’s Annual Sponsors and the volunteer hours from REALTORS® and Industry Partners on the KCRAR Events & Outreach Advisory Group.
