[ARCHIVED] America Recycles Day

ARD Nov 15

For America Recycles Day 2017, I pledge to:

  • Learn. I will find out what materials are collected for recycling in my community.
  • Act. Within the next month, I will reduce the amount of waste I produce, I will recycle more, and I will buy products made with recycled content.
  • Share. In the next month, I will encourage one family member or one friend to take the #BeRecycled pledge.

While the national recycling rate has increased over the past 30 years and is currently at 34%, Michigan's recycling rate is far behind at 15%. Recycling is good for the environment and for the economy.
