America Recycles Day is November 15th! The national recycling rate has increased every year for the past 30 years. The current recycling rate is 34.7%. With your help, we can raise this even more!
Did you know that the average American produces 4.4 pounds of trash a day, and
on the whole the United States produces over 250 million tons of trash a year?
Let's make a big splash together with this Thunderclap and inspire everyone to
Sign this Thunderclap and please take the America Recycles Day pledge. Ten lucky people who take the pledge will win a park bench, made from recycled materials, of course!
JOIN US IN RECYCLING:
For America Recycles Day 2013, I pledge to:
· Learn. I will find out what materials are collected for recycling in my community an where local America Recycles Day events are being held at: AmericaRecyclesDay.org.
· Act. Reduce my personal waste by recycling. Within the next month, I will recycle more.
· Share. In the next month, I will encourage one family member or one friend to take the pledge.
Remember to raise the recycling rate you’ll need to recycle on America Recycles Day and throughout the year! Visit www.IWantToBeRecycled.org for more information on where to find the nearest recycling center to you and what materials can be recycled, how they should be recycled and what products they can become in the future.
Keep America Beautiful and the Ad Council are mobilizing new recyclers and spreading the word on how and where to recycle through the "I Want To Be Recycled" campaign. Learn how to give your garbage a new life at IWantToBeRecycled.org.
