America Recycles Day

Today is America Recycles Day! Did you know that recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 trees, 2 barrels of oil, 4100 kilowatts of energy, 3.2 cubic yards of landfill space, and 60 pounds of air pollution?

These environmental benefits should be enough of an incentive for everyone to take part in the simple activity of recycling. By reusing the Earth's natural resources, we reduce green house gas emissions and the need to build landfills. We also ensure that these natural resources will be around for future generations to use.

America Recycles Day celebrates all of the benefits associated with recycling and encourages people to do their part. Learn more about this holiday and what you can do to help!
