Why isn’t everyday recycling day? It is for me, and many others.
But did you know that today begins National Recycling Day (Nov 8 – 16, 2008)? It’s an Australian initiative. I wonder if those down under have greater stamina when it comes to recycling…
because in the U.S. it’s officially just one day. November 15th is America Recycles Day. Their site includes a “Conversionater” that calculates recycling’s impact. I couldn’t get it to work… maybe you can.
Their Top 10 Items To Recycle:
- PET plastic bottles (most bottled water comes in this, #1 plastic)
- Corrugated cardboard
- Steel cans
- HDPE plastic bottles (those are the #2 plastic)
- Glass containers
- Mixed paper
