America Recycles Day

Friday November 15 is America Recycles Day (ARD), an annual event created by Keep America Beautiful (KAB). Recycling is one of the easiest things we can do to reduce our environmental impacts. Through ARD, KAB increases awareness and encourages people to pledge to recycle. This is more than a consciousness raising exercise through consorted national action this event makes a meaningful difference. In addition to pledges, more than 2 million people participated in events across the country in 2012. Through these activities a total of 3.7 million pounds of recyclables were collected which is equivalent to eliminating the emissions of 280 cars. The day of action is meant as a springboard that incorporates recycling into out daily lives.
