Today is “America Recycles Day,” a national initiative put on by Keep America Beautiful. As we celebrate by taking a good look at our recycling practices, we’re reminded to improve our recycling habits today and every day! Do you know how to recycle right? Every location is different, so make sure you research your area to see how you can contribute! Want to be a little more involved? Attend a recycling event or take the pledge!

Every person can be part of the effort against marine debris by embodying the “3 Rs” as much as possible—reduce, reuse, and recycle. Initiatives like “America Recycles Day” help to keep us on track and remind us of the simple things we can all be doing to help prevent marine debris. America’s recycling efforts have improved, but there is still a long way to go. Think about how you can help! Remember, every effort counts. Think of the difference it would make if we all did our best to recycle!
