America Recycles Day is “One day to educate. One day to motivate. One day to make recycling bigger and better 365 days a year.” An initiative by Keep America Beautiful and several supporting sponsors, America Recycles Day is November 15th. There are several ways to get involved:
- Share your #recyclingselfie – Share a photo of you on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram and include #RecyclingSelfie for a chance to receive one of many prizes from Keep America Beautiful or one of the sponsors. Sweepstakes runs through November 20th.
- Share a selfie on the Linn County Solid Waste Agency’s Facebook page – You could even share the same selfie. Use the hashtag #haveyourecovered and then visit them at NewBo City Market on November 15th to claim your free t-shirt.
- Check out the “I Want To Be Recycled” campaign – Also by America Recycles, this campaign will take you on a journey to discover the key steps five items go through to become recycled. You can also play a game and learn how materials are sorted at at a materials recovery facility.
I know you’re recycling already, I hope you’ll take the time to check out these campaigns to learn more about the recycling process and to share with your friends how you recycle.
