If you’re a regular reader of Sip & Savor, then you know we like to share information about recycling. After all, we care a great deal about our environment. In fact, our industry’s containers are 100 percent recyclable - and we want to help you do your part to bring those containers "Full Circle." But we also want to remind you that it’s important to recycle all recyclables, including newspapers and magazines; cardboard and paperboard; glass bottles and jars; aluminum foil (make sure it’s clean) and metal cans; plastic bags, bottles and containers; and more.
We hope you try to do your best to recycle no matter where you are – at home, on-the-go or at the office. So find out what you can do to make recycling a part of your life, if it isn't already. Find out if your community has a curbside recycling program. A good place to start is by contacting your local department of recycling, transportation or sanitation. Some cities also have public space recycling bins available on streets, in parks and in other locations to help you out when you’re on the move. And many office buildings have recycling requirements. If your office doesn’t, try checking out Earth911.com for great tips on how to create a workplace recycling program. Earth911.com also has a nifty tool to help you find out “what” you can recycle “where” by entering your location to find a recycling center.
Wherever you may be, we encourage you to “Think Inside the Bin.” And if you’d like to learn more about some examples of ABA member companies' efforts to support and promote recycling in their businesses and among consumers, check out our news release from last year’s America Recycles Day.
We hope you find time to "refresh" - but when you do, please be sure to recycle.
