Recycling ~ Three Easy Ways to Make a Difference

Recycling ...We have come a long way! But we still have a ways to go!

Did you know in 1970 only 5% of the USA waste was recycled ~~~ Now it is 32.5%

In 2012 American recycled:
  • 13% of Water bottles
  • 45% of Aluminum Cans
  • 67 % of old Appliances

Here are 3 simple ways to make these numbers higher in 2014!
  • Stop buying water in individual water bottles - purchase a reusable water bottle - perfect to take to work and replace disposable cups and water bottles

  • When you use Aluminum cans - ALWAYS RECYCLE

  • When you purchase new appliances ask about their disposable program - only purchase from companies that will take the old appliances and dispose of them by recycling.
These are three easy ways to make a huge impact in our environment.  

Together we can make a difference.
