November 15 is America Recycles Day. On the National Recycling Coalition website you can learn all about why and how to recycle, the do’s and don’t of recycling, and what is actually done with recycled products. The website also provides several lists of recommended books that you can read to learn more about recycling.
Check out their conversionator (the link is at bottom of their page) where you can calculate the impact of your recycling, see information on the top ten reasons to recycle, and the top ten items to recycle.
If you are not yet recycling, November 15 might be a good day for you think about how you can get started helping the environment in some small and simple way.
If you already recycle, yay! – but before you pat yourself on the back too many times, check out the site and see if there is anything else you could be doing, or any events you could get involved in in your area.
