AMERICA RECYCLE DAY
November 15, 2013
America Recycle Day (ARD), celebrated on November 15th each and every year, is dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and to buy recycled products.
The purpose of America Recycle Day is to promote the social, environmental and economic benefits of recycling and to encourage more people to join the movement to create a better natural environment.
America Recycle Day Events and Education
Since the first America Recycle Day in 1997, millions of Americans have become better informed about the importance of recycling and buying products made from recycled materials.
And it’s working. Americans today are recycling more than ever.
On America Recycle Day, FUN Raising Dollars puts forth an extra push to help educators, volunteers, and coordinators to organize events in communities nationwide to raise awareness and educate people about the varied benefits of recycling.
The EPA estimates that each person in the U.S. generates over 70 pounds of unwanted clothing and shoes PER YEAR. Over 55% of these recyclable items still end up in landfills!
Want to learn how to raise money for your school or non-profit group, while recycling clothing so it can be re-used or repurposed? Email us at FUNraising Dollars.
Every action counts. Be conscious. Make today and every day, a recycling one!
