Recycle your old carseat~
Reposting: Carseats expire after 6 years from the manufacture date. There is no easy way to get rid of an old car seat. Most non-profits won’t take them, because if a seat has ever been in an accident then it is no longer safe to use and is a liability. Plus, car seats are not supposed to be used longer than six years since over time the plastic actually breaks down and compromises the safety of the seat. If you’ve been holding on to an old car seat, then fear not, you can get rid of it this weekend! Legacy Emanuel Children’s Hospital is sponsoring a free “drive-through” child passenger safety seat recycling event:When: Saturday, March 22, 2008, 10am-Noon.
