Recycle Your Beer Carriers And Corks at Franklin Liquors

"It’s estimated* that at least 10 million new plastic can carriers are used annually by breweries in Massachusetts, with just 10% of them being collected and re-used, and less than 2% of them ever getting recycled.  As a result, the amount of plastic beer packaging waste ending up in landfills each year is enough to fill any of the state’s largest breweries with discarded carriers rather than beer. 

Now you can bring them to Franklin Liquors to be reused by local breweries!"

Yes, a local answer to the issue raised in 2021.    https://www.franklinmatters.org/2021/05/did-you-know-that-plastic-beer-carriers.html

And Franklin Liquors will also recycle natural wine corks!


We also want your corks!!
Bring your natural wine corks to Franklin Liquors to be recycled!

Recycling your natural wine corks helps replace environmentally harmful, petroleum-based materials in consumer products with a natural, sustainable alternative.

Find out which wines use natural cork and which ones don’t. When you reach for a bottle, look for those with natural corks. https://recork.com/corkwatch

State Representative Roy: What's happening - September 2021 Newsletter


Logo

Your support is greatly appreciated!

Thank you

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who attended my event on September 8 in Franklin. It was an amazing evening and I am so grateful we could all reconnect in person. It was a treat turning 60 with so many of you present. You can view photos from the night by clicking here.

I have some people that I need to thank for all their efforts and support. Thanks to the whole team at La Cantina Winery for hosting us at their beautiful outdoor space. I also want to thank the team at The Rome Restaurant for providing, as always, such delicious food.

I would also like to thank Dr. Michael Walker-Jones, Jennifer Knight, Tom Mercer, Mike Doherty, Representative Mike Soter, Congressman Jake Auchincloss, and Majority Leader Claire Cronin for giving such thoughtful and kind remarks. I am honored and humbled by their friendship and support over the years.

If you haven't had a chance to donate towards the event yet, and you want to support our 2022 campaign, you can do so by clicking here.

Thank you all again for coming. I couldn't have spent my 60th birthday with better people. I look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Jeff

Energy/recycling event in Franklin

We had a very successful Recycling and Energy Event in Franklin. Over 300 cars were served and over 100 dehumidifiers were delivered in exchange for $30 and a rebate on a new purchase. The program typically brings in 1,600 dehumidifiers annually across the state, and we did 100 in just one day.

We also collected four truckloads of furniture for Habitat for Humanity and two truckloads of electronics for recycling. And we had folks from Eversource and Mass Save sign up several customers for energy savings repairs in their homes.

It was a great way to help fight climate change and reduce energy costs. Many thanks to Fred Cullen at Green Team Junk Removal, Marcie Rappa, National Grid, EverSource, MassSave, Habitat for Humanity, and the Town of Franklin for helping put it all together and make it a success.

And thank you to the residents for helping save the planet by showing up and turning in your unused goods and and giving them new life.

Franklin Cultural Festival "Community Unity" - photo essay

How does one determine the success of the Franklin Cultural Festival "Community Unity" event held on Sunday, Sep 12, 2021 in great weather.

  • The crowd and lines were steady from the opening at noon through 3:30 or so. Some may have decided to check out the sports event on TV. For those that remained, salsa lessons and great music continued.

  • The variety and number of food trucks. Could there have been more, yes, if the food truck owners had followed through. For those who ran out of food early, maybe they'll be better prepared next time. For those trucks that didn't participate, their missed opportunity. It is a great start.

  • The Kid's corner and puppet shows were pleasing based upon the hoots and hollers from those watching the show.

  • The line up of artisan crafters was multifaceted. Many of the booths reported good business from the great amount of traffic.

  • The beer and wine garden was busy when I stopped by. Got my wrist band after getting my license checked. Then some liquid refreshment to go with my food truck tacos on the lawn in the shade. I was not alone. Dozens of others were under the tent at tables or spread around the lawn as well.

  • Cultural diversity was achieved with one view of the salsa dance lessons. Participants spread among the ages from young to young at heart, mostly women (but a few men). A youngster with a Patriots jersey learning the salsa inline with a couple of young ladies wearing saris.

At least for this day, the smiling faces seemed to be enjoying the art based event. Let's work together for more of this. And yes, Franklin Matters is proud to be in good company in helping to sponsor this event.

Pour Richard's Pennywise - virtual sale through Sunday, Aug 16

"Have you ever had a great meal-and a superb bottle of wine- at a restaurant, then tried to recreate that experience at home, only to find you absolutely cannot buy that wine without going to a restaurant and paying approximately 4 times the wholesale cost of the bottle?

Well. Check this out-with restaurants closed or at limited capacity, we got our hot little hands on some of those coveted bottles. Not only that, but we're selling them at a discount! We have plenty of the usual crowd-pleasing penny-saving bargains you expect from Pennywise, but also: Magnums of Chateauneuf-du-Pape for $65. 50% off Premier Cru Burgundy. Stellar Pinot Noir. Bodacious Zinfandel. Mature vintage of an iconic Napa Cabernet. And more. SO much more. 

This is without a doubt the best Pennywise list I've ever put together. So if you love wine, know someone who loves wine, or even think you'd like to learn to love wine, tune in tomorrow at 9-you'll be glad you did!

Ordering ends Sunday @ 6PM. The orders will be ready for pickup anytime after 5 PM on Friday, August 21.

Then save some green on red, white, and pink!
"


Shopping starts at 9 AM HERE
