Reduce! Re-use! Recycle! America Recycles Day

This week marks the annual celebration of America Recycles Day which encourages us to recycle, and use products made from recycled material. Recycling is not difficult. It sends less material to the waste stream, and it results in consuming less of our precious and limited natural resources. According to the National Recycling Coalition, America Recycles Day "is dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and to buy recycled products".

♻ Use colder months and time spent in doors to create awareness of the importance of recycling, and to increase recycling. The world will thank you for it. Even if you practice recycling today, there is probably more you can do. We encourage you to look around at home, at work, or in school, to identify ways your can practice recycling. ♻ Here are a few often forgotten household items you can responsibly recycle today!  Shampoo bottles, plastic bags and wrappers, plastic bottles and caps, unwanted mail, batteries, and mobile devices.
