This America Recycles Day, we’re asking you to think twice about using plastic. The recycling rate of plastics is only 4% (compared to paper at 50%) and many plastics are too small to be recycled. We can all help to waste less. If you don’t need it, leave it.
Use #WasteLessWednesday to show how you avoid unnecessary plastic on America Recycles Day and ultimately every day. Additionally you can visit wastelesswednesday.com to download our posters and post anywhere you think they can make a difference.
Happy 20th anniversary America Recycles Day and happy #WasteLessWednesday!
