Today is America Recycles Day. From Keep America Beautiful’s website:
Since 1997, communities across the country have come together on November 15 to celebrate America Recycles Day. More than a celebration, America Recycles Day is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to the promotion of recycling programs in the United States. One day to inform and educate. One day to get our neighbors, friends and community leaders excited about what can be accomplished when we all work together. One day to make recycling bigger and better 365 days a year.
You can use the America Recycles Day website to find activities happening near you, or to pass the word to others. At Roosevelt University, we attempt to understand how recycling works and ways to improve recycling activity. This issue will be a focus of the downtown seminar SUST 240 Waste in fall 2012, as we assess Chicago’s many attempts to implement an effective recycling system.
