Think for a moment about all the trash you produce in a day. If you’re like the average American, you generate 4.4 pounds of trash in just one 24 hour period. Instead of all that trash going into a landfill, help us ensure that more of it gets recycled and given a new life.
November 15 is America Recycles Day, and we’re working with Keep America Beautiful (KAB) to encourage the entire country to recycle more. Americans recycle just 35 percent of our waste, and we need YOU and your readers to help us change that.
Take the I Recycle pledge today, and tell us what you pledge to recycle more. You can make your pledge go even further through our America Recycles Day Thunderclap, which will post a synchronized message of support on the Facebook or Twitter accounts of all our supporters at the exact same time on America Recycles Day. All it takes is one click!
Help us make as big of an impact as possible with our recycling campaign. Here’s what else you can do:
· Share our America Recycles Day Thunderclap with your social media followers. The more people that spread the word, the more people we will reach.
· After you have signed the America Recycles Day pledge encourage your readers to do the same. Ten lucky people who take the pledge will win a park bench, made from recycled materials, of course!
· Direct your readers to IWantToBeRecycled.org to find the nearest recycling center near them. The website also contains facts on what materials can be recycled and what they can become in their new lives.
Thanks for supporting this important campaign!
