America Recycles Day – Brought to you by your sponsors …

November 15, 2010

What are you doing for America Recycles Day today? Since I am an avid recycler already, I have chosen to spread the word and also participate in a used magazine drive that the OSU chapter of Net Impact is having on campus today. These magazines will be donated to local hospitals and nursing homes so more people can get pleasure from them.

Now, there were some articles out there today dogging America Recycles Day. These were in places that typically praise recycling practices. Instead of continuing to do so today, they chose instead to complain that it wasn’t enough and that recycling is the last thing you should do, instead we should be promoting zero waste or reducing more. These sites also argued that because this day was sponsored by companies that are in the trash and consumer products businesses that it was selling out. I disagree. Any step in the right direction is a step in the right direction. So long as people continue to buy, they will continue to waste, so I praise everyone who decides to recycle instead of throwing something away in the trash. I praise Keep America Beautiful for getting these brands to support their recycling campaign. I hope you do as well.

I recently attended the Association of Ohio Recyclers Conference in Dublin, OH and I plan to type all this week about some of the amazing ways that items can be recycled. I hope to hear from you about how you supported America Recycles Day though.

Spread the word!
