Did you know how much trash you generate each day? On average, it is close to five pounds. Only in the US, we produce about 728,000 tons of daily garbage. We could have recycled over 75% of waste from that trash.
Though National America Recycles Day is November 15, I believe we can celebrate it every day by recycling our own trash, whether it’s at home, at work, or wherever we are.
As parents, we can raise our children to be environmentally conscious. As consumers, we can challenge local companies to have corporate social responsibility strategies (CSR). As leaders, we can initiate, develop, and execute CSR to address priority needs of the community.
It is crucial to Recycle, Reuse, and Reduce so that we can conserve more and save more.
