The 23rd Annual “America Recycles Day” (ARD) as always will be on November 15, 2019. ARD is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and to buy recycled content products. Each year since inception in 1997, the ARD campaign has increased in awareness and has continued to evolve. Since 1997, at least 79,850 Americans have taken the Pledge to increase their recycling habits at home and at work.
The US Environmental Protection Agency now has an America Recycles web page. Should NCRA also join the list of “Pledge Signatories”, current count at 167? See https://www.epa.gov/americarecycles/forms/america-recycles-pledge#PledgeSignatories. Consider taking an Individual Pledge in solidarity. Encourage others to consider doing likewise.
