Even though America Recycles Day was yesterday, it’s important to keep the momentum going and celebrate every day! As a nation, our efforts to recycle are improving, but there is still a long way to go. Think of some of the products you use that might not come to the top of your mind when you think of recycling. This might include personal care items found in the bathroom (like haircare and mouthwash bottles), plastic bags from the grocery store, plastic wrap used to package things like toilet paper, and consumer gadgets and electronics (like mobile phones or televisions)—all items that can be recycled!
Not only can we continue to practice and celebrate recycling, but the America Recycles Day initiative continues with the “I Will Recycle” sweepstakes through November 20th. Enter now and take the pledge!
Remember, every effort counts. Think of the difference it would make if we all did our best to recycle! For more information on how to help combat litter and marine debris, visit our website.
