Every year on November 15th, millions of people all over the U.S take part in America Recycles Day, which raises much-needed awareness about recycling, as well as purchasing recycled products.
How we recycle and reuse products is incredibly important. For example, single-use water bottles flood America’s waterways and landfills at a whopping rate of 60 million per day. One way to reduce this number is with a water filtration device and by using portable, reusable drinking bottles. In America, 105,800 cans are recycled every single minute. To put that in perspective, your TV can run for up to 3 hours from the energy saved by recycling one single can.
The National Recycling Coalition created America Recycles Day, and it first started in 1994. Every year, the President declares the day, encouraging millions of Americans to commit to recycling. This important day has been a program of Keep America Beautiful since 2009.
So, recycle, try your best to buy recycled goods and additionally, help teach others about the great benefits of recycling and strive towards doing it every single day.
