Ready to start recycling?
We hope so, because according to “National Geographic,” each American sends 64 tons of waste to the landfill during his/her lifetime. And considering there are more than 325 million of us in the U.S. alone, that’s 246 million tons of waste being generated each year. Thankfully, the aim of National Recycling Day on November 15 is to encourage Americans to purchase recycled products. By reducing our waste and increasing our recycling, we can convert waste into reusable material — and help save our planet in the process!
It can truly change the world
Think just one person can’t make a difference? Lauren Singer developed a zero-waste lifestyle where she’s able to reduce, reuse and recycle everything she consumes. She’s got this down to a science — and is now able to fit all of the trash she’s produced within the last four years in a single mason jar. Her website proves that if everyone lived similarly, waste wouldn’t be nearly as much of a problem.
Note: The National Recycling Day has become a ‘World Recycling Day’.
