In this country, it seems like we love to make up holidays for absolutely everything! But what better holiday than one that inspires people to take a step forward towards environmental conservation. Let us rejoice with the idea of waste reduction because today is America Recycles Day!
“One day to educate. One day to motivate. One day to make recycling bigger and better 365 days a year. Get Involved!”
This pseudo holiday has been around since 1997 and it’s the only nationally recognized day that encourages people to recycle and buy recycled products.
So today, on 11/15/11, we should all make a conscious effort to better the state of our planet and lower our consumption footprint!
