Good Monday morning! I wanted to let you know about a national campaign to raise awareness about the benefits of recycling and buying products made with recycled materials.
It's called "America Recycles Day" and its this Friday... November 15! When you hear the word recycle... you probably think of things like paper... plastic... aluminum and glass. But did you know that motor oil... electronics... batteries and tires can be recycled, too?
Recycling common household materials reduces the amount of waste that ends up in our landfills. It also saves energy... protects natural resources... and provides materials for new products. Here are some examples from Earth Gauge of ways recycling helps conserve and save the environment.
Before you toss a household item in the trash can... find out if it can be recycled. You may be surprised by some of the items that can be recycled – auto fluids... corks... computers... light bulbs and much more.
You can visit search.earth911.com to find out what you can recycle... how and where. Provide your city or zip code and the item that needs to be recycled to find a nearby recycling solution.
